The building materials were all taken from the Puerta de Elvira, the 11th century Arab gate that marked the entrance to the city.

The monastery of 'La Cartuja' was built on the remains of a Roman cementery. It is considered a masterpiece of Spanish Barroque arquitecture. Although construction begaun in 1516, it took more than 300 years to complete the building. Its formidable exterior hides one of the most ornate and decorative interiors with special note for the church, the sacristry and altar.
