The Basilica, which comprises a nave 21 metres long and 11 metres wide, is accessed through an atrium. Its presbytery is 7 metres wide and 8 metres deep, and houses the main altarpiece with the Santísima Virgen de la Esperanza Macarena occupying an embedded chamber called the camarín. On the right and left hand sides there are four chapels, each 4 metres deep, dedicated to the titular images of El Señor de la Sentencia and Nuestra Señora del Santo Rosario, to the altar of El Cristo de la Salvación and Santa Ángela de la Cruz and to the altar of La Hispanidad.
