  • According to the paper "Historical Monuments of Hungary" of historian Gyula Forster, the fortified church and enclosure were built in the XIV-XVI centuries; during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries they served as defense against the Turks. The first bell tower was built in 1727, but then modified between 1761-1763. Manufacturer of the 1761-1763 tower is Mihalzfalvi Lajos. Between 1799-1800 the church was modified in a Baroque style. In 1830, the church and tower were destroyed by fire, and rebuilt between 1835-1845 in a classical style. The author of the reconstruction in 1835-1845 is Landl, a military builder.
