Following the construction of Praça Nova, the work of D. Manuel I, his son D. Luís decided to provide it with a public market. For this he chose one of the tops of the square. The building was so sumptuous that the Infante, in a letter dated April 17, 1550, proposed to the councilors of the council that it be given a more dignified destination.

There are references to this ancient temple, since the reign of D. Fernando, when it served as the parish of São Tiago. At the time of Filipe I (1590) it underwent renovations that definitively changed its medieval appearance and in 1624, due to its state of neglect, it was rebuilt according to the taste of the time.

Built outside the walls, next to the castle and to one of the city's Roman outposts, the Évora gate, this church in the simplicity of its façade “hides” the artistic-architectural preciousness that it keeps inside. A remarkable set of capitals attest to its Visigothic origin.

Located next to the keep, it largely survived because it was stuck between backyards and houses for many years. Under the arch you can still find traces of the primitive Roman pavement.
