In 1602, the Spanish nobleman Juan Enriquez de Herrera dedicated a chapel in the church of Santiago, the Spanish Franciscan of Rome to Diego de Alcala. The mural decoration, with scenes from the saint's life, was done by the Bolognese painter Annibale Carracci. In 1604 began designing the master of all the preparatory cartoons, but he came ill while personally directing the work 'in situ'. So, the work was finished by his collaborators, who included Giovanni LanfrancoSisto Badalocchio and Francesco Albani. In the mid-nineteenth century the frescoes were uprooted and transferred to canvas and are now distributed between MNAC and Museo del Prado.
