This beautiful church, the Convent of Capuchinos, dates from the 17th century and was established by the Capuchino Order. Construction started in 1660 at the express wish of Don Rodrigo Ponce de León, Duke of Arcos and Lord of the Four Villas, and it was finished 1670 under the orders of Fray Pedro de Andújar.

It has the typical facilities of a Baroque monastery (gatehouse, church and convent) and inside the church there is a single box nave covered by a barrel vault, with a semi-spherical vault over the presbytery.

The main altarpiece is to preside over by a venerable, miraculous image of Nuestra. Señora de los Remedios, Patron Saint and Mayoress in Perpetuity of Ubrique, dating back to the early 17th century and enjoying the sublime devotion of the people of Ubrique.

At either side there are small-sized figures of San Rafael Arcángel and Santa Teresa de Jesús, and on the upper part of the altarpiece there is a statue of Jesús Resucitado and two paintings of considerable size representing San Miguel Árcangel and La Piedad, both from the 18th century.

Inside the Convent of Capuchinos there is an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus overlooking a small altar in the presbytery, the Immaculate Conception in a small chapel, and images of the Santo Cristo del Perdón, by Alarcón, San Francisco de Asís and the Beato Diego José de Cádiz.

On the outside, the façade is crowned by an atrium with three semi-circular arches, and a triangular gable with an oculus in the centre. In the atrium there is a majestic ceramic altarpiece of large dimensions representing the Beato Diego José de Cádiz near a venerated image of Nuestro Padre Jesús del Gran Poder de Sevilla, which was laid by the Gran Poder Brotherhood to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Beato Diego José.

The Convent of Capuchinos is currently owned by the Brotherhood of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, Patron Saint and Mayoress in Perpetuity of Ubrique, since it was purchased by Bohórquez Ángel Oliva in 1942 for the Holy Virgin.
