It is an example of the religious architecture of the Jesuit period, built in 1612, reconstructed by the Swiss military engineer Jacques Funck in 1763. It has suffered severe damages during the Navy Rebellion at the end of the XIX century. It has been restored in 1995". (cf. cipa.icomos.org/papers/99c313.pdf)
