A view from the entrance
The image shows a view of the Sacristía Mayor (Main Sacristy) as you enter this room. In the middle is the Custodia de Arfe, a processional custodia made by Juan de Arfe y Villafañe, a master sculptor born into a prominent family of goldsmiths/silversmiths. Note: Custodias are receptacles for holding the Blessed Sacrament.

On the left is the silver statue of San Fernando attributed to Pedro Roldán, who made it in 1671. On the right is the statue of La Inmaculada Concepción (Immaculate Conception of Mary) made by Alonso Martínez of Seville in 1650.

Behind the Custodia de Arfe are the three richly decorated enclosures, each with a famous painting.
