The church was said to have been built in the 17th century, under the Dominican friars. It was built using adobe instead of red bricks, which sets it apart from most of the Spanish-colonial era churches of the Valley.

It was nearly destroyed during World War II when it was set ablaze, leaving it in ruins.

Today, the faithful people of San Pablo still uses this church. They made use of at least 1/3 of the original site. The rest was used as a garden with walls of the old church.
