In 1723 Sofia Potocka founded a monastery, that she endowed with large estates and donated large sums of money for the establishment of a Catholic church, erected in 1723-1735.
The church was built in Baroque style and its last renovation was in 1918. It was then that the towers were restored to their original shape with Baroque-style towers, replacing the previous ones with the sharp points, installed in 1896.
The monument’s interior is decorated with drawings, sculptures and illusory paintings that have been preserved only in fragments.
Near the northwest entrance is a two-story construction, where there were cells built since 1723.
Another element of the complex is the bell tower above the gate, also dating from 1723. It is located in front of the Catholic church and is built of carved stone blocks. The bell tower ends with a pediment. Once from it, stone walls surrounded the monastery on both sides, fortifying it. These walls have not been preserved.
