The church is a Gothich building with six interior chapels, an octagonal presbytery and two spired towers.
Its history goes back to the beginning of the XIV century, when in the place of the stone basilica from the XIII century, the brick-church was built.
Inside the church there are valuable Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque furnishings, and the beautiful wooden altar made in the second half of the XV century by Wit Stowsz: it is one of the biggest altars in Europe, it is made entirely of wood, in the shape of a large cabinet with hinged panels.
