All its surface is covered with mural paintings of vegetal motifs in gold complemented with plasterwork in certain points, in its craftmanship the hand of Cecilio Antonio Franco Roldán can be seen.

The small altarpiece that presides over the chapel is in the 18th century Baroque style, centered on an image of the crucified Christ of academic size from the beginning of the 17th century, flanked by paintings of the childhood of Christ, in the attic, a small image of the titular Saint.
