During the months of June, July and August 1998 and October 1999, were conducted archaeological survey work of the external area of the domes of the maqsura, both on the top surface thereof as in their flashlights and covers. They were funded in its first phase by the Provincial Office of Culture of the Junta de Andalucía and, in its second phase, by the Cathedral Chapter.
Cleaning of walls has restored information about the original structure of the lanterns that host the three domes of the Maqsura. That illustrate the highlight of the Hispano art, unsurpassed by later constructions nor emirate or caliphate architecture previous.
