  • An enigmatic and singular building that is promoted by the paintings of Goya containing in the upper chapel, along with other important. Starting with the input discrete, down to the crypt which is curiously dark less some entries of light precisely on the end opposite the staircase, very illustrative. At the other end of the ship a small space between the two uprights with a way of placing with pulpit for the greater colleague, since today is headquarters of the Cofradía de el Rosario, but which originally could be anything. Accessed to the upper floor, the rich Chapel, a staircase of marble and columns that already anticipates the richness that we find. There we have the Goya.

An extensive seating area for a 'reader', a type of choir Chair hangs over which a Blendlaterne which has arguably focused the light on the Vorlesepult is situated opposite the altar. Two storeys higher the oratory, the elaborate Baroque prayer hall, with the three original Goya, of which impressed me the most the unusual appearance of the 'last supper' is. In the background, Haydn's passion composition is discreet about speakers ' was playing the seven last words of Christ on the cross ', which premiered on good Friday 1787 here in this place. Remarkably, even a painting, largely unknown in Germany by Franz Xavier Riedmayer, represents a protective sheath Madonna, although the big time seek shelter under their coat, her power insignia (crowns, tiara, Bishop caps etc.) but carelessly at the bottom of scattered - the French Revolution was not far...
