The painted decoration of the border of this window is the best preserved of the three, using the same motif as the interior in the form of intertwined palmettes on a red ground.

On the interior the painted decoration is similar to that of the doorway, in the form of a red band with palmettes, very deteriorated, on the extrados and the simulation of voussoirs with vegetal decoration on its interior, which, like the doorway is divided into seventeen segments.
