The church, a three-aisle church with a baroque interior, was built between 1872 and 1879, and was officially opened on the day of the feast of St. Catherine, on 25 November, with the presence of foreign delegations and Governor of British Cyprus. It was designed by Francesco da Monghidoro, an Italian Franciscan. It underwent a restoration in 1979.
