The catafalque of the dukes of Pastrana was ordered by Fray Pedro Gonzalez de Mendoza in the first third of the 17th century to celebrate his own funeral and those of the ducal family. It is made of black velvet, silk and gold and has all the objects needed to celebrate the Eucharist and adorn the coffin, which are made of ebony and bronze. It is considered to be the best preserved and the most complete in Spain.
