It represents the virgin with Jesus Child and the rosary. Ther first image was a sculpture by Salzillo that disappeared during the Civil War. Some important elements in this church are the Ecce Homo picture from the 17th century in the main altar, the 19th century pipe organ in the recently restored choir and the Penitential Chapel,Where an old Castilian ashlar stands out.
