It is located at the end of a street on the outskirts of the town, on a small hill overlooking the neighbouring village of Sempere.

It was built at the beginning of the 20th century, in the upper part of the village. It is a work of masonry and brick. It has a Latin cross floor plan with a half-barrel vault. The dome supported by shells, the rectangular presbytery, the rose windows in the chapels and the Baroque style canvas of the Christ of Amparo, from the middle of the 18th century, stand out.

In the front wall is the canvas with the Christ of Amparo, a Baroque work by an unknown artist from the mid-18th century, which represents the Crucified Christ with the Virgin, St. John the Baptist and St. Joseph of Arimathea at the foot of the cross. This work was restored in 2001.
The Christ is carried in procession during his feast day, which is celebrated on 14th August, on his luxurious litter, which is also kept in the chapel.
