He was born in Cabárceno, Cantabria, approximately 1675 or 1680, and learned architecture from Francisco Hurtado Izquierdo (1669–1725). He worked in various capacities on cathedrals in the style of Diego de Siloe, whom he praised greatly in writing.
Besides his work on the cathedrals of Granada, Guadix, Cádiz, and Málaga, he also designed the palace of the Dukes of Medinaceli by the Puerto de Santa María in Cádiz (1724), the shrine of the charterhouse of Santa Maria de El Paular in Rascafría, Community of Madrid, and the collegiate church of San Sebastián in Antequera (1738).
