The building of the convent began in 1682 and the first mass was said in 1689. The great buildings remain intact, with a churchyard in the front, a church with a recessed tower, a convent with fully functioning accommodations as of 1694, a third order chapel with an opening to the convent church, a garden in the cloister and a wall enclosing the orchard. Inside it was enriched by a new high altar at the beginning of the 18th century, as well as painting in perspective on the ceiling. On the façade angels hold an inscription dated from 1759 under the main window, referring to the addition of the volute decoration on the pediment. One enters the temple by the side door and steps into the vivid coloring that engulfs the whole church. The woodcarving is visibly older on the wreathed columns, painted in a rudimentary simulation of deep blue marble on the parts in relief, and of gold on the floral elements that frame the altars. The copings have heavy, pointed canopies and trimming throughout the whole extension of the chancel arch and unfettered in the side altars. The deep nave comes alive through the bright colors of the painting on the ceiling by Libório Lázaro Lial, dated 1784. The white walls pale before the boldness of the faux painting with palatial airs. There are balustrades and vases on pilasters circling everything. In the middle of the scene, vases covered by rolling clouds.
