History

This church was first founded here in the 12th century by the order of the Crucifers. The church and monastery were destroyed by fires and rebuilt in the 13th and 16th century. The church was acquired by the Jesuits in the mid-17th century after it was suppressed under the Crucifers. The Jesuits were later suppressed in the 18th century, and then the church and monastery were taken over by Napoleon in 1808 and were converted to barracks. The façade is a very ornate with carvings and sculptures, typical of the Baroque style.
