The church has a basilica-style floor plan, comprising three naves surmounted by five ogival arches on pillars, covered with vaulted ceilings with lunettes in the central part and 18th century groin vaults at the sides, which conceal the original wooden coffered ceiling. Sadly there was a fire in 1984, leading to the loss of some beautiful elements: the 18th century frescoes that once decorated the crossing’s dome and the main altar, of the same era, which was dominated by the icon of San Pedro. The Sacramental chapel, attributed to Ambrosio Vázquez de Figueroa is a real jewel of rococo architecture. The tower, named “Giraldilla”, given its resemblance to Seville’s cathedral, was built during the 16th and 18th centuries. It is crowned by a weather vane that represents faith, work of Alfonso Berraquero. It houses a large number of interesting works, among which, the following are outstanding: the Virgen de la Antigua, attributed to Roque de Balduque, Virgen del Rosario, an anonymous 18th century piece and an image of San José attributed to Montes de Oca, who was also the creator of the images pertaining to the brotherhood Hermandad de la Humildad y Paciencia: the Christ of Humility and Patience and the beautiful image of Virgen de los Dolores. Another important image is the Cristo de Animas by Martín de Andújar in 1632, which follows the canons of its era. At the foot of the church, in the altarpiece devoted to Santa Ana, is the image of Cristo Yacente. It is an interesting anonymous piece from the last quarter of the 16th century, from the disestablished brotherhood Hermandad del Santo Entierro from the former del Carmen church.
