This church was rebuilded at the end of the 15th century, on the ruins of a previous ancient church dedicated to the sacred sorrentine martyrs.
All that remains of the original church are the two piperno porticoes with square fornix, ovoid decoration and notches. Damaged several times, it was rebuilt in the 17th century to a 17th-century plan.
Inside, there is a single nave and side altars. The apse is decorated with paintings depicting certain episodes in the life of the Virgin Mary (Saint Anne with the Virgin Child, the Assumption of Mary, the Annunciation). On the main altar is a copy of the Brown Madonna (the original is in the Carmelite church in Naples). There are numerous paintings by the Neapolitan school: on the right wall, the Virgin and Child, the Virgin Wearing the Veil with St. Mary Magdalene, St. Andrew and St. Teresa of Avila, and another painting in the Chapel of the Holy Martyrs.
The sanctuary has only a single nave. At the far end there is an ancient impression of St. Mary (Santa Maria or Madonna): is a copy of the Dark Skinned Virgin of the church site in Naples and dedicated to the same saint. One can admire same painting of artists of the 16th and 17th centuries.
