In 1562 it was built a small church. Between 1572 and 1576 they were carried out extension work under the direction of Pignaloso Cafaro and Giovanni Vincenzo Della Monica. The work lasted until the seventeenth century, under the direction of Simone Moccia, author of the portal. In 1748, Nicola Tagliacozzi Canale designed the sacristy.
