The Chapel of the Crucifix’s portal has a richly decorated frame, as if this magnificence prepared the faithful for the treasure inside. The external frame consists of pilasters covered by plinths with two marble statues. In the upper part of the portal, there are decorations taken from the sacred and profane repertoire: two eagles, a bird with Archbishop Ruano’s coat of arms, dogs, hares, birds in pairs, griffins, snakes, turtles, snails and lizards.
