The construction of this building started in the 16th century, although little remains of that period. The convent is popularly known as "Las Gordillas", because it was founded on a property with the same name outside Ávila. The church is made of brick and has a single nave. Inside we find the convent choir, under a tierceron vault. In the main chapel there is a Neo-Baroque altarpiece. The church was declared a National Monument in 1991.
