The church is located at the beginning of the path that leads to Monte Cacume. It was built by the Jesuits at the end of the nineteenth century near an older church that had been destroyed.

It is imposing built with simple white local stone and is enriched by a valuable classical portal which you can reach by climbing a small white marble staircase.

The church has a single nave covered by painted vaults and inside is an interesting cycle of frescoes representing the Madonna painted in 1889 by Lucari. The faces of the figures of the frescoes are those of real people, because the painter used as his models the inhabitants of Patrica.
