At the end of the 17th century, sfter the departure of the Turks, returning residents came back and renew abandoned church. The church was primarily built in the Gothic style, but during the restoration has taken also some Baroque features. As such it was used for religious purposes until 1777, and in 1999 the church was reconstructed in a way that the walls of the ground floor was preserved and above all is destroyed and upgraded with brick and covered with new roof.
