  • The Franciscan monastery complex gave the Bishop Telegdy to the place of the older chapel of St. Peter and Paul in the year 1630. It also demonstrates stone relief over the entrance to the monastery. The monastery complex consists of the Roman Catholic Church of St. Peter and Paul and the Renaissance Monastery of Františkans. The Roman Catholic Church was built as a renaissance, and later was Baroque-adjusted. The eastern side is connected to the monastery. The interior of the church comes from 18. Century. The most valuable monument to the church is the 33 relief of the life of St. Francis of Assisi, carved by the order of the monks Francis Xaverom Seegen from Vienna, around the year 1760. The altar image comes from the year 1935 and illustrates the patrons of the church. In the front facade there is a relief from the year 1663, which shows the SV. Peter and Paul. The relief was discovered in the paving church where he was given during the Turkish wars. The church follows the Renaissance monastery with Baroque modifications. It is a one-storey building with a closed courtyard. The current form was acquired in 1763 when an extensive reconstruction was underway. A small baroque Calvary is located before entering the monastery. The main altar and six others in the side chapel-the altar of SV. Joseph with a picture of St. Anžky and the statue of Jezuliatka, the altar of Our Lady with the image of St. Apollóne, the Altar of the Holy Cross with the CRUCIP with the image of St. Magdalene and SV. Michala, fourth and fifth chapel along the sides of the main altar with the statue of God's heart and Virgin Mary and the sixth Chapel of Lurdská, which is dedicated to Virgin Mary of Lourdes.
