Protruding the miraculous image of the Lord of Chalma, the sculpture of San Miguel Arcángel and a beautiful piece with the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The sanctuary welcomes pilgrims with the Gospel phrase: "come unto me, all you who are tired trabajadosy and I will give you rest". Inside and above all in the sacristy there are anonymous canvases of the passion of Christ, the Magdalena and Santa María Egipcíaca, the spiritual conquest, the emergence of the Lord of Chalma and their transfer. Is tradition that them pilgrims that van by first time to Chalma acquire a Crown of flowers and wearing it down dancing, until the sanctuary, where is delivery in the entrance of the sanctuary.
