The strategic location of this church (barroque style, sXVII) has become one of the most characteristic of Sitges icons. A real picture of coastal, at the end of the promenade and at the top of the bulevard, after climbing the staircase find the cannon aiming out to the sea before going to visit the Church. From the Plaza del Baluard in front of the church there is a great view over the Paseo de la Ribera, la Fragata and the staircase that descends from La Punta to the Plaza de la Fragata. From here, the Cau Ferrat and Maricel Museums are practically next-door.
Its structure is quite unusual, because it has two bell towers, and has the clock that served the population to calculate the time in one of its towers. Its facade is quite simple but the frame where it is located is incomparable. There is a renaissance retable inside with Sant Bartomeu and santa Tecla
