The church, like all of Barceloneta was built under the orders of Jaime Miguel de Guzmin Davalos y Spanola, 2nd marques of mines and capital of Catalunya. In 1749 The marques gave the project to the engineer Juan Martin de Cermeno, a lieutenant coronel of army engineers with the intention of distributing the houses to fishermen and dock workers. Juan Martin enlisted the help of Damia Ribas, civil architect for Barcelona who tasked the Engineer Francisco Paredes.
Construction began 3rd February 1753 with the laying of the first street stones. On the 8th of May construction begun on the Sant Miquel del port church. After two years of construction the church was blessed by bishop Manuel Lopez de Aguirre on the 28th of September 1755.
The church is located in Plaza de Barceloneta which has 2 tapas bars and a coffee shop and is a much better place to eat than the tourist traps on the main road.
