The chapel, where the remains of Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba rest, also known as "El Gran Capitán" (The Great Captain). He was an outstanding Spanish military commander and one of the most important military strategists of Renaissance Spain. His military career spanned the late 15th and early 16th centuries, and his tactical talent and leadership skills made him one of the most respected commanders of his era.
