This church is also known as Santa María la Mayor church, as it was the new site of the Fortaleza de la Mota’s abbey church, becoming the town’s main church following its desacralisation and destruction.

The friars of the third Franciscan Order wer­e accommodated in this church at the start of the 16th century, but this church’s constructive process wa­s long and full of modifications, stretching out until the end of the 18th century.

The Virgen de las Mercedes, the town’s patron, is found in this church.
