In the 14th century, the town provided the church to the Carmelites, who came to Prešov from Poland in 1288. By the decision of King Leopold I in 1661, the church and the monastery belonged to the Franciscan order from nearby Nižná Šebastová. Thanks to the financial help of Baron František Klobušický of Prešov and Baroness Šóšová of Solivar, the reconstruction of the originally Gothic church soon began.
Following the model of the Jesuit Church of Ill Gésa in Rome, the entire facade with two side towers was modified. In the southern part of the Franciscan church at the altar of St. Anton, his remains are stored together with the remains of Terezia Klobušická. The restored church was solemnly consecrated in 1735. After costly reconstruction work, a second fire broke out on December 3, 1888, in which both slender church spiers burned and only a torso remained. The Franciscan church was in 1984 - 1993 subjected to the necessary overhaul.
