The church was last rebuilt in the 16th century. The Church and monastery were suppressed by Napoleon in the early 19th century, but the church as reopened later in the century by the Knights of Jerusalem. When it was reopened, many pieces were brought from other suppressed churches to complete the nave, such as altars and sculptures.
