The foundation date of the convent church remains unknown. It was rebuilt in the beginning of the 16th century. The Renaissance style main chapel was erected in 1694. The rest of the temple shows a Baroque-like style. The convent has the famous St. Peter and St. Paul reliquary made in ornamented silver, a 15th century goldsmith’s work. The former convent facilities still cover an important part of the hill, where the current district headquarters is located.
