The temple was church of the School of San Pablo de la Compañia de Jesús. In 1799, it became the parish of the Saints Justo and Pastor, located next to the neighboring Convento de la Encarnación. The church rises above a Latin cross plan and covers its only nave with a barrel vault with goffers. Above the transept, a hemispherical dome stands over a tambour with columns. The mais facade, located at the foot of the church, has two parts, and houses an iconographic program with Jesuit saints, with a relief in the second part about the conversion of San Pablo. A statue of San Ignacio growns the ensemble."
