It was built in the years 1676-1728 in the baroque style. The founders of the temple were bishop P. Gembicki and bishop A. Trzebnicki. It was consecrated in 1749 by bishop A. Załuski. In 1803, during the renovation, the northern sacristy was added. The church was originally built on a cross plan, but the floods in the 18th and 19th centuries destroyed the right and left wings. Built of stone and brick and then plastered, it once served as a defensive point (as evidenced by the shooting posts located above the sacristy). However, there are no documents describing any specific case of an attack on the church. The outer walls are divided by pilasters, above which there is a cantilever cornice. The outer façade is crowned with a triangular abutment. The gable roofs are decorated with a baroque turret with a spire, a lantern and a spherical cupola. The temple has a single nave with a four-span nave, which ends with a narrower chancel closed in a semicircle. Inside, the cross vaults on the buttresses turn into wall pillars ended with a cornice. In front of the presbytery, there is a beam with the image of Christ on the cross, and on the walls there is a polychrome by A. Marczyński from 1965. The Classicist altar is decorated with a Gothic figure of the Mother of God and Child by Jakub from Nowy Sącz from 1470, a Baroque painting of St. Joseph, and above all the Renaissance Tabernacle which is a miniature temple with a relief "Annunciation" from 1600. Also worth seeing are the paintings on the side altars: Christ, St. Peter and Paul from 1640, St. John the Baptist (18th century), Crucifixion (18th century), St. Teresa of Avila (19th century), St. Sebastian (17th century), the Heart of Jesus (baroque painting). The baroque baptismal font with the image of baptism in Jordan (XVHI century), the pulpit from the beginning of the 18th century, richly decorated with acanthus leaves and statues of saints, and embossed in leather and gilded curds in the main altar, as well as in the two side altars, are also extremely valuable. Among the smaller monuments, the Gothic sculptures of St. Jadwiga and St. Otylia from 1470, the work of Jakub from Nowy Sącz, a folk crucifix from the 18th century, a classicist pacific from the 19th century, a wooden hostess from 1705.
It is also worth seeing the paintings of bishops A. Trzebnicki and A. Załuski from the 18th century, the votive painting of the Virgin Mary from 1708 by J. Madycki, "Washing the feet of Christ by Maria Magdalena" and the painting "Saint Anna Samotrzecia" from the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries century.
The church belfry from 1803 is located in the perimeter of the 17th-century wall. It has the shape of an arcade for hanging bells. The chapel from the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries is located near the bell tower in the wall surrounding the church. Inside, there is a statue of Christ at a pillar in the baroque-folk style and four crosses on the walls.
The figure of St. John of Nepomuk from around 1876 is a cast-iron statue placed on a stone plinth in the church courtyard.
The former rectory from the first half of the 19th century is a brick building with a hipped roof covered with sheet metal. A porch on two pillars is visible from the front.
An old well has been preserved in the cellars, and a barn and a shed in the farmyard.
