The church was built on top of an old shrine devoted to Santa Ana and features influences from several styles due to the rebuildings after the 1755 earthquake.

It’s façade is decorated with plant and flower icons.

Inside it’s worth noting the two manueline columns, sculpted with figures belonging to all social classes, and a parade of musicians. The main chapel features a reredos with gilded sculptures where the images of Santiago and San José can be found.
