The building was built starting from 1640 by gods Lucchesi fathers of the Mother of God and it was dedicated to the Swedish queen, who later became Santa Brigida, who went on a pilgrimage to the city between 1365 and 1372.
In the middle of the nineteenth century the structure was renovated on disposal of Ferdinand II, until it is incorporated into the Galleria Umberto I.
The frescoes of the first half of the twentieth century depicting Stories of Santa Brigida, Virtues and Angels are the work of the Giordano (buried there), by Veltri and Diana.
