The building is next to the temple dedicated to Hera Lacinia, of which today remains a single Doric column. Today structure was built by Basilian monks of Salice Salentino between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries. After many changes, in the eighteenth century Church was transformed into a hermitage and in 1897 acquired its present appearance, on design by Anselmo Berlingeri.
