The church has a plain façade from the 18th century. It was restored in 1914. Nowadays, the building houses the Institute of Jaén Studies and the Documental Centre of the city. The Renaissance courtyard and the old chapel date back to the 18th century. It had to be reconstructed in 1919 due to the devastation of the fire of 1916.
