The chapel that originally stood here was extended in the late 17th century and turned into a church with three naves, two chapels in the main nave and another two in the Evangelic nave. It was last altered in the 18th century to look as it does today. Inside there are significant religious elements such as an 18th century figure of San Miguel, which is of German inspiration, and several pieces of precious metalwork. The classicist steeple was erected in the early 20th century, though it was then moved to the south end of the church after the fire in 1978, true to the original design and structure. New altarpieces were put up inside to replace those that were destroyed in the fire, using traditional woodworking methods. Some elements did manage to survive the flames, such as the figures of Virgen del Rosario and Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, as well as several paintings. Many of the religious works that now decorate the temple were created by the sculptor Ezequiel de León y Domínguez, such as Virgen de los Afligidos, El Nazareno, San Juan, Ecce-Homo, Nuestra Señora de la Piedad and Cristo de la Redención. The Church of Nuestra Señora de la Concepción was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in the Monument category in 2003.
