Located in the Ciudad Vieja of Montevideo, the church was built during the Spanish colonial times (around 1740). In 1790, the foundations were placed again for the construction of the building in neoclassical style that can be seen nowadays. It was consecrated in 1804 and dedicated to the Immaculate Conception and Saints Philip and James. Worth visiting on a walking tour of Montevideo.

On a side altar is venerated an image of the Virgin of the Thirty-Three, patron saint of Uruguay.

Also known as the Metropolitan Cathedral, Iglesia Matriz, in the Ciudad Vieja quarter, is the main Catholic church in Montevideo. Built in the late 18th century, the church's most distinctive features are its twin clock towers, 40 meters high. It is also known for the two pieces of furniture made especially for Pope John Paul II when he held Mass in this cathedral during his South American visit in 1988.
