Central nave of the Church of San Miguel, Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. The church is composed of 3 naves, where the central nave is higher than the lateral ones, with pillars decorated with gothic motifs and very diverse baldachins, whereas the altar is a work from 1609 by Juan Martínez Montañés 1609. The construction of the church began in 1484 due to a visit of the Catholic Monarchs to Jerez de la Frontera, but it took several centuries to complete, resulting in a harmonious mixture of elements from the late Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque.
