This chapel is in the grounds of what used to be a tobacco factory, which, since the 19th century, has housed the Rector's office and some of the faculties of the University of Seville. The paintings and sculptures from the old university building were brought here. The chapel is the seat of the Brotherhood of the Santísimo Cristo de la Buena Muerte and María Santísima de la Angustia, popularly known as Los Estudiantes (the students), which takes part in the processions on the Tuesday of Holy Week carrying its two statues of Christ and the Virgin Mary. The statue of Christ is an excellent work of art by Juan de Mesa made in 1620. In the same chapel a Renaissance statue of the Virgin Mary can be seen, a work by Astorga dating from the beginning of the 19th century. The baroque altarpiece and the paintings representing the Twelve Apostles are also of interest.Mass is conducted at 1:30p, 8p M & W-Sa, 1:30p, 8p & 8:30p Tu, noon & 1p Sundays & holidays
