Girola y Trasaltar

The grave of Archdeacon Pedro Fernández de Villegas, designed by Simón de Colonia, may be found in the ambulatory. Felipe Bigarny did the reliefs in the transept's center, while Pedro Alonso de los Rós did the reliefs at the transept's ends.

Transaltar reliefs
The chapter hired Philip Bigarny, a sculptor, to make a stone relief for the transept in 1498. Bigarny used limestone to create his replica of the Camino del Calvario. First known work by this artist in Burgos, it exemplifies his distinctive style, which owes much to Gothic expressiveness and aesthetics while remaining receptive to Renaissance developments. The chapter was so pleased with his work that they commissioned two other reliefs from him: the Crucifixion (1500–1503) and the Descent, Burial, and Resurrection of Christ (1500–1503). Unfortunately, these works are also extensively damaged because they were carved in low-quality stone that crumbles in damp environments. Simon of Cologne is credited with designing the architectural underpinning for the reliefs.

Almost two centuries later, two new reliefs at the ends depicting the Prayer in the Garden and the Ascension finished off this sculptural ensemble. Between 1681 and 1683, sculptor Pedro Alonso de los Rós created them in limestone and the Baroque style.
