It is one of the four chapels built by the first inhabitants of the city, so it is one of the oldest churches. According to local tradition, it was built on a hermitage established by the first Spaniards in the 16th century.

It was built as a peripheral structure and intended for small religious acts, it was remodeled and repaired several times and its last redesign was made in 1870, when the side bell was replaced by a central one, which still remains. Since the earthquake of 1975 it stopped being used as a religious temple.

It was declared a National Monument in 1977. It is currently a Center for the Interpretation of Religious Heritage.
