  • It presides over one of the altarpieces, most impressive and monumental art of the Spanish Renaissance, designed and built in the 15th century by Simon and Francisco de Colonia. Within this church are the graves of the Polanco family, which financed the retable of stone. In addition to its Gothic tombs, they are also of great interest the Renaissance Arch of María Sáez of Ona and Fernando de Mena and the master of San Nicolas Burgos school tables. Many of the works of art were also paid for by the Polanco family also. It was declared a national monument in 1917. Being next to the Cathedral, it is a gem that you can't miss.
