Main Altarpiece

Late 18th-century  altarpiece. It is made up of a cut altar table and a single body divided into three sections and an attic. The columns have Corinthian capitals.
In the attic, a high relief with an image of the Assumption of the Virgin inspired by a Gothic model. 

The best images are located in each of the niches of its three streets.


In the central area we can see a representarion of Calvary made up of the following images:

El Cristo de la Misericordia, the only known work by the sculptor Domingo Pérez Donis (1604-1645) from La Laguna, whose arms are articulated, and who acts as the Deceased Christ in the Magna Procession of the Holy Sepulchre which takes place on Good Friday. This image is guarded by the Brotherhood of the Vera Cruz y Misericordia, which has its canonical headquarters in this temple.

To its right is Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows, a work of the Murcian sculptor Francisco Liza, dating from 1996. 

This image is guarded by the Brotherhood of the Vera Cruz y Misericordia and is carried in procession every Good Friday after the Señor de la Humildad y Paciencia (Lord of Humility and Patience).

To its left, Saint John the Evangelist, carved by the Murcian sculptor Antonio García Mengual in 1998.
In the niche on the right is a carving of Saint Francis of Assisi, an anonymous 17th century Canary School. 

It is a large work made in wood following the homonymous models of the Seville school of Martínez Montañés. It has a "T" engraved on its forehead.

In the left niche is the image of Saint John the Baptist attributed to the Andalusian sculptor Andrés de Ocampo (17th century). It is characterised by its baroque style and delicate work, and is one of the best sculptures currently in this church.
