The interior of this Cathedral possesses a wealth of Renaissance detail. Here also are many fine wrought iron screens, although the examples are scarcely so fine as in the Cuenca chapels. On the other hand the monuments, cloisters founded by Cardinal Carvagal in 1507, are built of a fine cream coloured stone, and bear the arms of Don Fadrique of Portugal, who was bishop  of Siguenza in 1530. Their appearance is greatly enriched by the ornament and moulding being gilded. The iron screens, standing out against the dark recess of the doorway, greatly enhance the effect.
