In 1301 and 1340, the Hungarian provincial chapter took place in the local monastery . In the years 1308-1309, the papal legate, Cardinal Gentilis, ofm, stayed here, fulfilling his political mission in Hungary. In 1327, the monastery was the place of negotiations between Charles Robert of Anjou and the Czech King John of Luxembourg. King Louis I the Great had a new Gothic church built in 1363 and at the same time the monastery was enlarged. In 1590 it was badly damaged by an earthquake. At the time of the Bocskay Uprising, the church and monastery were in the power of the Calvinists in 1605-1607. It was repaired several times in the 17th century. In 1666 and 1683 it completely burned down. The fire destroyed the vault, the main altar and 5 other side altars. The rich library, donated by Cardinal Pázmán and the archives of the monastery with all the protocols and documents, turned to ashes. With the help of benefactors, the church was repaired first by 1712 and then the monastery. The construction of the new church was supported by the Archbishop of Esztergom, Juraj Szelepcsényi , and in 1714 it was consecrated. The visitation report from 1823 states that the church was consecrated on September 1, 1714, consecrated by Lukáš Nataly, Bishop of Belgrade (honorary guest of the Franciscans) and did it for free. The tower was completed in 1717. The church still has this appearance. The monastery is connected with the church of St. James the Elder, Apostle (feast of the patron saint of the church on July 25).
