For me this was one of the most impressive chapels in the Mezquita. It's located in the southeast corner of the former mosque and the walls and pillars are all adorned with beautiful frescoes and wonderful religious art work.

The chapel was founded in 1330. According to my research the frescoes are by Cesare Arbasia of Saluzzo and date back to 1583-86. As you enter this small richly adorned chapel you will be greeted by a guard that is on watch probably to make sure that no one touches the delicate art. At the center of the chapel is the alter simply adorned.

Photographs are allowed in the chapel, so snap away.
