In the 1830s, the parish priest D. Blas Ortolá promoted the construction of a bell tower, which he built in those years, demolishing the old belfry, following Valencian Baroque models. This was a square tower with two sections, with a clock face and a bell tower with four windows, framed on the outside by pilasters and a cornice. The tower was topped by a balustrade.

Due to the fire on 26 July 1936, it was decided to rebuild the church in 1939, preserving the bell tower to be used for the new parish church. The project, the work of Ángel Romaní, was built between 1941 and 1946. In 1947, work resumed on the tower, which began by covering up the windows of the old bell room in order to build two more sections. Therefore, the old bell tower remained as the first section of the new one, while following the traditional baroque models, two decreasing sections were built, with eclectic elements, resulting in the current bell tower.
