Building of this church in the second half of the 16th century by the only access to Lastovo town from the coast was motivated by the fear from the plaque. Since it also made the local people’s main meeting place, a stone bench was built for them to rest as well. In the early 17th century, the Fraternity of st.Roch ordered a wooden altar, that was replaced with the stone altar from the church of Our Lady in the field in 1913.
During summer, St.Roch become the small art gallery with various exhibitions.
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.
