Overview

This church was built by the orders of King Philip II, ruler of the Spanish Empire. Construction began in the mid-16th and was finished in the end of the 17th century. During the period of Spanish colonization, it served as a base for the Spanish troops. In 1941, the convent was torn down to build the Salomé Ureña Institute and only a small portion of the convent next to the church remains. Since 1916 the convent has housed nuns of the Sisters of Mercy order. Today the church consists of one nave covered by the ribbed vaults typical of late Gothic architecture.
