St Stephen Walbrook, City of London

Wren, Sir Christopher (1632-1723)
NOTES: The church was completed in 1680 while the spire was added in 1713-1714.

Chiswick House, London: detail of the Corinthian columns

Burlington, Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of (1694-1753)
NOTES: Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington and 4th Earl of Cork, refronted the existing Chiswick House and designed and built the adjoining villa to display his art collection and entertain friends in 1727-1729. He was inspired on his grand tour by Palladio's Villa Capra 'La Rotonda' near Vicenza.

Great Mosque (Mezquita), Cordoba: the dome over the bay in front of the Mihrab

NOTES: This former mosque became a place of Christian worship in 1236 when Cordoba was captured from the Moors by King Ferdinand III of Castile and the cathedral was built inside it largely in the 1520s.

Santa Maria la Blanca, Toledo: the arcades

NOTES: This Mudejar style building was constructed under the Christian Kingdom of Castile by Islamic architects for Jewish use and originally known as the Ibn Shushan Synagogue. It became a church in the 1400s but no major alterations were made. It is a fine example of Almohad architecture given its construction in brick and the use of pillars rather than columns.

Lincoln Cathedral: the nave

NOTES: The building of the cathedral comprised three main periods; from 1072-1092; 1191 to c. 1250; and 1256 to c. 1300, with some alterations and additions to the towers in the 14th and 15th centuries. The nave is largely 13th century.
