Monastery of the Incarnation . Museum of Sacred  Art. 17th century. The 18th century tiles from Seville that cover the lower part of the walls are of extraordinary beauty. They adorn the bright cloister and original staircase. There are also some 17th – century paintings, works by Francisco Meneses, from the school of Murillo.

Both images belong to the Jesus Caido brotherhood, which was founded in 1705.

The brotherhood participates in Ester Week on Maundy Thursday in the evening. The images of Fallen Christ and Our Lady and Mother of Sorrows are accompanied by remarkable music from bands comprising cornets and drums. Monastery of the Incarnation - Museum of Sacred in OsunaThe canopy over the Virgin Mary is one of the most elaborate as it is embroidered on the inside and outside. The procession is extremely emotive when passing through its neighborhood around the La Merced church.

Both images are usually housed in the Santo Domingo church, which is currently being restored. The procession starts from the Santa Maria de la Asuncion collegiate church, better known as the Collegiate. The Christ is carried by twenty-one costalero men hidden under the float and the Virgin is carried by twenty-eight. The nazareno penitents wear white tunics and blue cloaks and pointed hoods.
