This chapel dates from 1648 and was built by the Confraternity of Our Lady of Consolation of Prisoners. Situated opposite the Old Jail (abolished in 1916), it takes its name from the fact that it was where prisoners sentenced to death spent their last hours. The simple interior features tiles dating from the 17th century and several paintings depicting the Virgin Mary and the Passion of Christ.
