This convent was occupied by the order Carmelite in 1606. The origin of its construction must have been at the beginning of the 16th century, as we can appreciate some gothic and Renaissance elements in the façade.   Subsequently, the naves and the façade were restored in the 18th century. The inside of the church presents three naves covered by a barrel vault.

   

One of the most important altarpieces of the Sevillian Renaissance can be found in the presbytery of the church. It dates back to 1588-1590.

The architecture and the images are attributed to Juan de Oviedo el Viejo and Diego de Velasco, highlight the relief of Noli me tangere.

An interesting set of chairs is preserved in the chorus of the church coming from the Carmelite Discalced convent of Écija dates back to the end of the 17th century. It has a total of 22 seats whose chair backs have pictorial representations of saints Carmelites which are identified by their inscriptions.
