Thereafter, it was restored and entrusted to the Minori Conventuali Fraternita or Brotherhood. During the 18th century the church was deconsecrated but at the end of the same century it was used as a chapel for the public cemetery until the 19 century. As such, a wall was constructed surrounding the front of the church which is still standing today. The church dome is quite remarkable due to its elliptical layout which is indiciative of Arab influences. It is currently deconsecrated and is part of the municipal patrimony being often used for cultural events.
