The Shrine to Our Lady of Incarnation is located within the Celti archaeological site (Asset of Cultural Interest), on San Pedro Street, an extension of Juan Carlos I Street towards Calvario Street, La Viña and the former road from Cordoba to Seville. 

This 18th-century building has a rectangular plan with a single nave covered by a wooden coffered ceiling. The presbytery has a baroque dome decorated with plasterwork from 1766, according to the inscription on the dome. The baroque altarpiece houses the image of Our Lady of Incarnation, the titular image of the chapel. The side door, also baroque, dates from 1778. 

 After its renovation, the Shrine is now used as a multi-purpose hall, where conferences, exhibitions, concerts, etc. are held.
