On a hill, a Romanesque pillar arcade basilica was built at the beginning of the 13th century. Badly destroyed by the Mongolian storm, the church was rebuilt at the end of the 13th century as a Romanesque basilica with a bell tower. The bell tower is integrated into the western facade and takes up the entire width of the central nave. In the 15th century, the basilica was redesigned as a fortified church. The side aisles were demolished and a fortified floor was built over the nave and the choir. The west portal was walled up and the tower was given a battlement. In 1676, the hall church was provided with a barrel vault with lunettes. The vestibule of the tower has been connected with the church since 1784. The triumphal arch, choir and the battlement were removed and a new polygonally closed choir was built in 1834. Major restoration work was last carried out between 1965 and 1973. The tower was consolidated with reinforced concrete belts, the tower first floor was secured with a concrete mantle and the west portal was opened. Through the opening of the portal, the preserved vestments and the tympanum of the portal are now visible. The defensive wall is closed in the east by a rectangular fortified building. In the southeast corner there is a shell tower open to the inside.
