    Located at the very place where the first residence in Noves was built, it was originally a simple hermitage for Observantine monks. The chapel nave, adjacent to the hermitage, was built in 1630 and extended in 1722 in accordance with the wishes of the inhabitants of Noves during the great Plague of 1720-1721. A pilgrimage linked to this wish still takes place today (first Saturday in September). The apse was built in 1832, followed by the narthex in the 19th century. The inside of the chapel can only be visited on Heritage Days.

A building belonging to the Saint-Louis-du-Rhône company was used as a church before the construction of the current building. The church was built without a bell tower in 1907. The bell tower was built by the architect Daniel Collonge in 1996. The painted décors on the bell tower, dated 1997, were created by Jacqueline Chaudet.
