The first church on this site was built in 1234 for the Dominicans, but when it became too small it was expanded in 1330. It has since than been added to several times and the architecture and art is a mix of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles
If you look up on the fašade, facing St Peter?s Church, you can see two small stone faces, which are probably the faces of two monks.
