Built between 1671 and 1744 according to a project by three architects; Jesuit priest Francisco Bautista, Manuel del Olmo and Bartolomé García Hurtado. Architecturally, it is a typical example of a baroque church in Madrid. Its plan is based on a Latin cross, with a single nave, and covered by a barrel vault with lunettes on the arches.
Outside there is an interesting façade made from granite, with three arches of entry and a low relief above the main entrance depicting San Benito and San Bernardo adoring the Blessed Sacrament. It was acquired by the Ministry of Defence in 1979 to house the Archbishop of the First Military Region, a position he currently holds. It is located in the Austrias district.
