On the wall behind the altar the frescoes depict a Crucifixion with several depicted characters:
Magdalene, St. John, some groups of women, and disciples, soldiers and knights.
A devil welcomes the soul of the bad thief and an angel welcomes the soul of the good.
Other angels collect in chalices the blood that comes out of the side and hands of Christ.
In the vault above the altar the Christ Pantocrator in almond, to the right the Christ in the Garden, to the left
the Resurrection and the descent to Limbo.
On the left wall there è the representation of Hell and the ride of the Vices, which depicts the seven Deadly Vices and a great
Lucifer nailing Judas with big nails.
On the right wall is painted the Heavenly Jerusalem with the ranks of the souls of the elect who assist
at the coronation of Mary, who is depicted kneeling on a throne and dressed in red.
Around it there are turreted walls and the representation of the Works of Mercy.
On the entrance arch in Gothic niches are depicted St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua,
Saint Lucia, Saint Thomas Aquinas; in the niches and corners there are other saints.
It should be noted that although the name of the Chapel is dedicated to the Madonna, there is no depiction
of the Madonna and Child.
As we said, the paintings are very similar to the frescoes of San Fiorenzo in Bastia (CN),
in some cases it seems that the same cartons have been used;
perhaps they were probably made by the same artists who were working in the area at the time.
