The Virgin of the students-currently very visited by these- a carving on wooden polychrome, of author unknown, belonging to the 12th or 13th centuries. Was found in 1968 in the barn of a village of the province of Cuenca and donated to the Church, It is restored 1975 by J. Esteve Edo and polychromed by A. Barat.

This image of the seated Virgin with the child's foot, sample, in its radiant color and simple lines, the popular interpretation of other most educated forms. It highlights the contrast between the impassivity of the Virgin and the child mobility and humanization.
