PLATE VIII. BURGOS. The Cathedral. Part Elevation of the Staircase in the North Transept.

This unique staircase, designed by the celebrated Diego de Siloe in 1519-22, connects the transept with the street level which is twenty-six feet above the floor of the Cathedral, through a doorway called the Puerta Alta. The wrought-iron balustrade, by Cristobal Andino, is painted and gilded, the background being a dark greeny-blue, and the scrollwork, with its figures of cherubs and busts, is also in gold and colours. The stonework of the staircase is carefully jointed, as shown on the left-hand side of the plate. The carvings are very delicate and in low relief. The only marble portions are inside the central archway.
