The Lateral Murals
The two more complete murals appear on the flared sides of the apse and serve in part to frame the apsidal windows.
Although slimmer and less well preserved, both follow the "retablo" style format of the principal fresco (#1) deploying the same broad range of bright colors with the addition of shades of green. The narrative center panels are framed with triple striped, painted pilasters.
On the north side, (#2) the panel depicts the Ascended Christ with St. Francis, and on the south (#3) a portrait of St. Helen embracing a large cross.
The “Cut off” Murals
Remnants of both frescoes have survived, taking the form of painted wall retablos which feature inscribed portraits of kings and other notables on the north wall (#4) and of Franciscan friars and nuns on the south side (#5). Further interpretation of the themes of these murals is needed.
