It was built during the first half of the 16th century.
The uniqueness of this church is due to its fortress type structure, since it had to fulfill defensive purposes. Noteworthy is the Main Altarpiece, built at the end of the 18th century and the altarpiece of the Virgen de la Victoria, located in the Main Chapel.
King Charles I of Spain reported on the advisability of redesigning the city and the fortress of Vera after the 1518 earthquake. It would be a new city with a wall, towers and, in the centre, a parish church, rectangular in shape, with towers at the corners.
It is an isolated temple whose single rectangular nave is divided into five sections, with very thick walls and only two entrances: the main one and the secondary one.
