Evidence of the first hermits dates back to the beginning of the 14th century. They stayed at Sa Talaia. The site has ever since been used intermittently as a place of worship.

The present construction, which still brings back memories of its defensive purposes, dates back to 1679. It has a Baroque nave, covered by a ribbed vault, with a Baroque altarpiece room where the image of la Mare de Déu de la Victòria is worshipped. The image is a 15th century polychromed carving which was probably brought by Fray Diego, a hermit who stayed in the area in the 15th century.

The chapel is located in a privileged setting with views over the Bay of Pollença.
