Language variant : Iglesia conventual de San Pablo
Architect : Torquemada, Juan de (commissioner)
Locality : Valladolid
Country : Spain
Building style : Plateresque
Nowhere was the copying of retablos so obvious as at Valladolid. Here the facades of San Pablo (1486-1492) and the college of San Gregorio (Museo Nacional de Escultura) are surcharged with ornament, the former in a style recalling Simon de Colonia (whose father was Hans of Cologne).
(The decoration, known as Gothic Plateresque, is often termed Isabelline, because it was almost confined to the reign of Isabella.)
