Since the fourteenth century, some of the great families of the nobility of Burgos began to build important graves in convents and churches. With these graves they tried to keep the memory of their passage through the world and to promote prayers for the salvation of their soul. To do this, they commissioned these graves to important artists who often used alabaster as material. The alabaster became a symbol of distinction and power not only for kings but also for great nobles such as Velasco, Gómez Manrique and Acuña Osorio
