This neoclassical chapel was initially part of the annex temple of San Pedro Mártir. The main space, and older, serves the function of dressing room of the titular image, was realized by Vicente del Castillo and the stonemason Andrés Cordón in 1758, forming a circular space of neoclassical style. Inside it contains a baldachin, which shelters the image of Our Father Jesus Nazareno. The second space was made around 1838, coinciding with the closing of the temple of San Pedro Mártir and it presents such an architectural disposition that the dressing room, except in the dome, is reduced with very flat radial bands. In the sculptural aspect they emphasize the image of Our Father Jesus Nazareno, realized in the sixteenth century, of Gothic features and the funeral urn of the Santo Entierro (Holy Burial) realized by Pedro de Mena and Gutiérrez in 1769, that contains a recumbent Christ, work of Miguel de Verdiguier of the year 1774. The Church of San Pedro Mártir of Verona was part of an old Dominican convent founded in 1575. The temple only conserved the exterior walls, the belfry and two covers: the one of San Pedro and the one of Nuestra Señora del Rosario (Our Lady of the Rosary), both Mannerist, datable around 1630, although the first boasts baroque elements added in 1721 under the direction of Leonardo Antonio de Castro. The recently restored building has a Latin cross plan, where elements such as the central nave, with vaults made of wood, and the transept stand out. Likewise, the work has allowed the recovery of the main façade, the clearing of the blind clerestory windows over the side aisles and the columbarium area, presided over by the carving of Juan Pablo II made by the local artist Francisco Javier López del Espino.
