Located along Via Mazzini, a tree-lined avenue known among the Teramans as "I tigli", the Church of the Capuchins and the adjoining convent were built before 1150 by the Benedictine Fathers and then entrusted to the Jesuits and finally, in 1575, passed to the Capuchin Fathers .

The Church has a fairly large structure, made of brick with a sober and essential facade on which there is a stone portal with a flat architrave surmounted by a stone-framed bezel and, even higher, a round window. The entrance is via a simple and nice staircase that reaches the churchyard.

Posteriorly there is a bell gable that supports a bell. In the mid-eighteenth century the Church was embellished with a remarkable wooden altar, built by the Capuchin friar from Teramo, Giovanni Palombieri. Internally it has a single nave with another small side aisle divided into small chapels and sacristies..
