One of the oldest and most beautiful Gothic churches in the Csallóköz. Near the church, foundations of charnels from the 12-13th were excavated.

The church was built in the third quarter if the 13th century in late Romanesque style. It is likely that the church also functioned as a local fortification and in order to fulfill this role, side aisles and a tower were added to it allowing occupants to better see the approaching enemy as well as the threat of fire and flood. During the course of the centuries, the church was reconstructed several times. It was renovated in Gothic style in the 15th century, its frescoes date back to this time. At the end of the 18th century, it became a Reformed church when the new complex was built. The foundations of charnels from the 12-13th century were excavated near the church.

Joseph II dissolved the order in 1786. The monastery is called the Korona (Crown) today for the Korona Restaurant that operated out of the city-owned wing of the building until the 1960s.
