Founded in the 16th century by the archbishop Alonso de Fonseca. The church was built in Gothic style. It has one nave, covered by ribbed vaults, and a polygonal apse. In the interior we can see remarkable examples of religious art, such as the tomb of Don Alfonso de Fonseca, which consists of a marble sarcophagus shaped like a burial mound, sculpted by Diego de Siloé. On the Evangelist nave we find the tomb of the butler of archbishop Francisco Rivas.
