Long Description:
We can fin this church in Villablaca, a small village near the Portuguese border.

"Dating from the seventeenth century, there are written record of its existence in 1612, when the Marquise of Ayamonte Doña Teresa de Guzman gives permission to sell land for its construction.

The building follows the general pattern of the province of Huelva: A basilica with three naves. Built in stone with a tower of brick, which were very appreciated before the 60s, and with the roofs equal to the one of the nearby chapel.
The top of the tower is perhaps the most distinctive for its bulbous shape.
It shows a very different construction from the rest of those done by the Marquis of Ayamonte."
