The statue of Mary holding Child Jesus in her arms, known as the Virgen de la Sede (Virgin of the See), is located just above the base and at the center of the Retablo Mayor (main altarpiece) at the main chapel. Carved in wood and coated with silver, this beautiful sculpture was made in the 13th century by an unknown sculptor.
