Álava, Juan de

Álava, Juan de (c.1480–1537). Spanish master-mason involved in the building of the Catedral Nueva at Salamanca (1512) and Seville Cathedral (1513). Later, he worked with members of the Colonia family at Plasencia Cathedral (notably around the crossing), and from 1521 he built the cloisters of Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, in the Plateresque style, which are among the largest and most beautiful in Spain. From 1524 he was engaged in building the Church of San Esteban at Salamanca (completed 1610), and was in charge of the works at Salamanca Cathedral from 1526. His work spans a late flowering of Gothic to early Renaissance styles.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content.
