This was the first renaissance building in Andalusia. Its size and the quality of its design make it a really impressive structure. The exterior of this church boasts a stunning façade, the most monumental in Antequera. Inside it is currently almost devoid of ornamental features and an altarpiece, as the temple, no longer used for worship, is now a venue for concerts and travelling exhibitions, as well as for tourist uses.

Many masonry items from the Roman city of Singilia were used in the construction of this temple. The design began following Gothic guidelines, as is evident in the frontal part, ending up as a structure in pure renaissance style. The ornamentation of the façade focuses on the three large niches, in a highly geometric decorative design, exhibiting some manneristic features. Remains of the original site, abandoned due to the instability of the ground, can be observed close by.
