This church was built in the XVI century on the old Muslim mosque of Villena, at which time it became the church of El Rabal, the suburb outside the medieval walls of Villena.

Following the stylistic norms of the Reconquista churches, it consists of a single nave with a gothic ribbed vault supported by arches with Renaissance reliefs and its polygonal apse lacks an ambulatory. The beautiful main façade stands out, framed by a baroque doorway that houses the Virgin of the Assumption in a niche. The church is declared a site of local relevance.
