The Greek-Catholic Cathedral, the former Minorite church, was built between 1778-1779. The barely finished tower collapsed, causing damage to the ship as well. Reconstruction was possible thanks to Maria Theresa. Johann Eberhard Blaumann made the Baroque tower plan.

Above the entrance is a text: "The tragically collapsed tower was rebuilt from the gift of the majesty Theresia"

The roof of the tower burned in 1798, reached its original appearance at the end of the 19th century. The 44m long church, 15m wide, 13m high, has a 26m tower. The ceiling has frescoes made in 1908 by Lohr Ferenc.

In 1926 the church became the property of Greek Catholics, and in 1948 it was the property of the Orthodox. The altar was built iconostasis, frescoes were smoked and resolving old graves. After 1990, the Greek Catholics received the church back.
