Favorite Piece: Cathedral of Granada
There were no new techniques used in the making of the cathedral but the detail and color in it is amazing. I love how throughout the whole cathedral it is gold and white making it look rich and cheerful. Everywhere you look there is something that you didn't observe before because there is so much detail to look at. This is why I like this cathedral so much and chose it as my favorite.

Most of Siloe's work can be found on buildings and chapels near Spain and Italy. He was an architect so you cannot buy his work, only visit and see it.
