This funerary chapel was built between 1519 – 1533 by the Italian architect Bartolommeo Berrecci and its construction was financed by the king Sigismund I the Old.
The chapel has a square base and stands out with its golden dome. Inside visitors can see the tombs of the king Sigismund I the Old and his children – the king Sigismund II Augustus and the queen Anna Jagiellon.
