(1509–75), Spanish architect, apprenticed to Diego de Siloé. He was the last exponent in peninsular Spain of the style of Spanish architecture known as Granadine Renaissance. His masterpiece is Jaén Cathedral (1532–48), which influenced the redesign of Mexico Cathedral by Claudio de Arciniega in 1584 and Francisco Becerra's designs for the Peruvian cathedrals of Lima and Cuzco. Vandelvira's final building was the Chapel of El Salvador in the Santiago Hospital at Úbeda (1562–75).
