It is the only one of the seven churches that Coca will have in other times.

It is built in brick for the walls and part of the tower, while the buttresses, the interior columns, the ribs of the vault and the windows are of limestone. Despite the date of its construction, it has few openings, so its exterior appearance is quite solid.
