For many years, this place has been a place of prayer. We have to go back to the times when Balaguer was inhabited by the Arabs and they had their population center in the Plà d'Almatà. With the reconquest carried out by Earl Ermengol in the 11th century, Christianity became present. Much of the current sanctuary building dates from that period.
In the seventeenth century, due to the ever-increasing great devotion to the miracles that the Saint Christ was said to have performed, the temple was widened and placed under the invocation of the revered image of the Virgin, which today still retains this veneration of the faithful. The main door opened to the south, facing the city, where a completely flat façade was built and crowned by an arch with descending curvature on both sides.
