Long Description:
The church was originally constructed by the Jesuits in 1672 and then passed to the Augustinians in 1768. It has been raided and destroyed by pirates, rebuilt and then damaged and repaired on a number of occasions as a result of hurricanes and earthquakes until finally destroyed by fire in 1912. The building that replaced it was also destroyed by fire in 1959. Rebuilt again, it suffered severe damage from the 1975 Coquimbo earthquake. Its last reconstruction was in 1985 and in 2002 the Augustinian Recollect Order assumed the responsibility for its administration. The church was declared a National Historic monument in 1981.

The church stands out for the use of stones for its construction, as well as the use of beautiful stained glass windows, which illuminate the interior.
