It should not be confused with the Franciscan ″Terra Sancta Church″ in the same city. It is very close to the coast, near the lighthouse.
The present church was built by the Franciscans of the Holy Land Custody in 1737, at the site of a former church dedicated to St. Andrew. It works as a parish church for the Catholic community of Latin or Roman rite. It was renovated in 1947.
