  • Home of the Confraternity of the White Penitents, this chapel is dedicated to Saint Elizabeth. Its façade, on a bossed base with two fluted pilasters, supports a triangular pediment. The interior of the chapel is made of polychrome gypsies. The central canvas of the altarpiece of the major altar, dating from the 17th century, represents the Visitation of the Virgin.
