(b. 1669, Priego de Córdoba, d. 1725, Córdoba)


Spanish architect, sculptor and decorator, noted as the architect of the Sagrario (Sancta Sanctorum) in the Carthusian monastery in Granada. He was an inventive master builder. His decorative forms, deriving from classical elements, but with prismatic angles and multiple ornamental details, influenced Andalusian Baroque architecture for decades.

His other important works are the sanctuary in the cathedral of Granada, the Sagrario of the Carthusian monastery in El Paular, and the Hospital of Cardinal Salazar in Córdoba.
