It was originally a Roman mausoleum dating from the 3rd century which was transformed into a Christian basilica in the 5th century. It was built using architectural elements from the old Roman city of Tritium Megallum, which is formed by what are today the towns of Tricio, Nájera and other nearby population centres.
