This is one of the smaller of Cartegena's churches. Erected between 1666 and 1732, its ceiling is covered with Mudejar paneling. During Vernon's attack on the city in 1741, a cannonball went through a window into the church when it was filled with worshipers, but fortunately there were no casualties. The cannonball is now on display in a glassed niche in the left wall. The church was undergoing a full renovation in 2014, and should soon be looking superb again.
