In the Monostor district of the city stood the Monasterium Beatae Mariae de Clus Benedectine order abbacy rounded by a huge wall at those times. The actual church is only a fragment of the fortress built in the XI century what unfortunately couldn't be rebuilt in lack of dates.

The Benedectine order monks moved in the cloister between 1077 and 1095. In 1241 the cloister was gutted and burned by the Tartars. It was rebuilt in 1263 by Béla IV and after because of the agonistic attitude of the friary king Mátyás battered the cloisters wall down. The building was gotten in 1559 by the Jesuits but in 1787 Rudnai bishop ordered the batter down of the abbacy.

Only the altar survived onto what later was built a chapel and a statue of Mary keeping Jesus in her arms what can be seen above the entrance. In 1896 the roman-catholic church built up the today seeable one body church what is given for use to the Greek-catholic church for 25 years.

In 1948 the church got to the Orthodox Church and it got back to the roman-catholic church only when the construction of the new Orthodox Church had finished.

The church can be accessed on the south-eastern side of the Way of the Cross church.

The way goes between two hills. On one there is the Way of the Cross chapel built in 1831 and on the other the belfry planed by Károly Kós in 1922. To the church goes a path. South of the church there align tombs from the XIX century and north-east of it can be seen the ruins of the former fortress.
