History

This church was moved to its current location in 1571 where it housed slaves and prisoners of war. The purpose of the church was to convert the inhabitants to Christianity and ready them for baptism. The church and housing facility was rebuilt in the 18th century. The complex later became a nursery school and is now part of the Istituo Suore Salesie.
