The Church of San Francisco has a box floor plan, where we find a nave and five sections covered with groin vaults reinforced with transverse arches (half-point arches that reinforce the barrel and groin vaults).

The chapel of Cristo de la Columna is located in the third section, it is characterized by its rectangular floor plan covered with a half-barrel vault and lunettes and subdivided into three sections by transverse arches.
