Like other parishes in Seville, its origin dates back to the Reconquest of the town. It is located on the same site as a Roman temple, on which a Visigothic church and later a mosque were built. It is a Gothic-Mudejar type of church, although it was modified during the 17th and 18th centuries.
Although the Church was built between 1776 and 1836 on the remains of a building destroyed in 1755 in Lisbon earthquake, there are still decorative and building elements that date back to the Visigothic era and the Arab invasion.
