This church was founded by the community of Carmelite friars in the early 18th century and is the oldest religious building in operation in San Fernando today. It is a traditionally Cádiz church, where the Baroque and the Neoclassical live together in harmony.

The historic interest adds to its artistic interest, since after the signing of the Cádiz Constitution it was at this church where the Cortes Generales of Parliament continued their sessions between 14th October 1813 and 15th January 1814, before it was impossible to continue with this at Comedy Theatre after the refusal by its owner.

On 27th November 1813, the Cortes Generales approved between these walls our current name “San Fernando” in honour of King Ferdinand VII and the concession of the title of “City”.
