Spain. Seville. A cathedral. The late-Gothic Christian temple was under construction in 1402 - 1506. Its dome was created by an architect Juan J. de Ontagnon in the place where a mosque minaret (1184 - 1196) of an Arabian governor Abu Jakuba was situated. In the middle of the 16th c the minaret became a Christian bell-tower (1560 - 1568, architect Ernan Ruis). The statue-weather-vane Giraldina which crowns the bell-tower has given the name to the bell-tower – La Giralda. The Seville cathedral is the biggest one in Spain and the third largest one in Europe. It is a huge rectangle (140x76m) (without annexes).

Russia. Moscow. Pokrovskiy cathedral (St Basil cathedral). It was built in 1555-1561 by architects Barma and Postnik.

In 1588 the tenth St Basil’s church was attached to the cathedral. The fantastic riot of architectural forms of the cathedral is combined with the beauty of trim.
