The site is part of the Museum of the City of São Paulo and to this day no one knows for sure the origin of the chapel, for lack of detailed documents that could prove the true story.

In the mid-twentieth century in order to value the land of the farm, architect Gregori Warchavchik, considered one of the pioneers of modern architecture in Brazil, was hired to build the Chapel of Morumbi. Made with masonry and bricks from the ruins of rammed earth of the nineteenth century, the work mixes the archaic and the modern.

In 1979, the site underwent another rennovation, which included a pantry and sanitary space. The central part was transformed into a concert hall for holding cultural activities. Starting in 1980, it was opened to the public and started receiving cultural events such as photo exhibitions, music concerts and art exhibitions. In 1991, it went on to host exhibitions related to contemporary art and historical heritage.
