The church was erected by the Fraternity of Our Lady, in the Lokavje filed, in the first half of the 14th century. In the early 16th century, on its foundations a new one was built, by its style the most beautiful church of Lastovo. The local tradition has it that it was built by Dobre Dobričević, while his sister Dobra stimulated the workers by playing tambourine. The altar painting is by Piero Francesco Bissolo, showing the Madonna with the Son and Saints, and the very Dobre kneeling as the donor. In the girl playing an instrument in the middle of the painting , the people has recognized his sister Dobra. The wooden altar was replaced with a much larger, stone one in 1807. The two lateral altars were removed too, one taken to the church of St.Roko, the other to that of St.Salvator.
Mjesto Lastovo je staro srednjovjekovno naselje sa dugom i zanimljivom poviješću, amfiteatralnog oblika, okruženo brdima. U mjestu Lastovu se mogu pronaći prekrasne obiteljske kuće iz 15. i 16. stoljeća, koje krase bogato ukrašeni "fumari" (dimnjaci) i lastovski sulari koji su postali zaštitni znak Lastova. Lastovske skalinade (kamene stepenice) koje obavijaju staru jezgru oko crkve i šire, te lastovski dimnjaci daju poseban mediteranski ugođaj, iako Lastovo nije smješteno uz more nego u samom srcu otoka.
