SummaryThe purpose of this work is to uncover some aspects of the biography of Felipe de Unzurrunzaga, who was born in Villarreal (Gipuzkoa) and who, like so many stonecutters from the north, was working in Madrid toward 1680. It was in Madrid where the Count of Buenavista contracted him for his construction work in Malaga, where he was to be designated municipal architect. His activity in the Convento de la Victoria is fully documented. Here he built the tower hall and the pantheon of the Buenavista family. He also participated in the transformation of the parishes of Santiago and of Sagrario, and in various buildings in Ronda. He has also been related to the 1st phase of the Church of San Felipe, that of the Church of the Holy Conception and various other chapels. He was also the master consultant in the Cathedrals of Granada and Malaga. He is quoted as having been professor of architecture, stone cutting, masonry and carpentry. Some important altarpiece works have also been attributed to him.
