predela
Explanation:
Due to the quantity and quality of the works of art brought together her, it would be impossible to make a selection of the most significant ones. We might point out, among the more ancient exhibits, the group of medieval panels, the Predela de la Anunciacion, the Ecce Homo triptych, attributed to the Coteta Master, the Saint Julian panel, the Pasion altarpiece, the triptych of the Assumption by the Master of Burgos, Bernat Matorell's Assumption, a Virgin and Child in polychromatic glazed earthenware by Lorenzo Mercadante of Britany, and a 14th Century Crucifixion. These works, together with important examples of 15th century Spanish painting can be seen in rooms I and II. (http://www.spaintour.com/seville.htm)


lowest element of an altarpiece:

By the way, Predela is also a place in Bulgaria (www.travel-bulgaria.com/ptf/culture.html )

Predella is an Italian term for the long horizontal structure at the base or 'foot' of an altarpiece. Such structures are usually painted with narrative scenes which are related to, or expand upon, the subject of the larger images above.
