It is one of the most well-known churches of Stockholm, its construction began in the XIII century. The temple belonged to a monastery of Franciscans those time.

Chapels were repeatedly attached to a Gothic temple during centuries. In the XVIII century its interior was updated in style of a baroque. In 1835 a lightning destroyed a bell tower of a temple which was built up anew and was topped with a carved iron spike.
