San Franscisco de Borja Chapel

1 voto
The retable bears an 18th-century canvas by Salvador Maella showing the conversion of the Duke of Gandía, shown dressed as a knight of the order of St James, raising the cloth which covers the face of the dead Empress Isabel. Seeing her body inspired him to become a Christian so that he could serve a master who would not die.

The chapel of St Francis Borgia is one of the most important one from an artistic point of view. Like all the side chapels, it was built in the 18th-century neoclassical style. It’s square in shape, with a circular dome.
