Crossing the courtyard with 28 arches we enter a chapel which has a small altar by the entrance, leading to several caves in which were found a number of relics and texts from the Sixteenth Century.

A cross that is believed to have belonged to St. John of God is located in the main cave at the site where the holy men were burned.
