The paintings of Francisco de Goya stand out, in addition important sculptures and finally the famous Austriac compositor Joseph Haydn who wrote for this chapel his work "The Seven Last Words of Our Redeemer on the Cross", that he himself considered as his most accomplished score. The Ministry of Culture declared it a national historical-artistic monument in 1981.
