At the end of 15-th century a Gothic church was built and 1511 was consecrated. In 1772 the start of building the today's church was done. Master mason Andrä Hueber from Kitzbühel has built the church. The tower still comes from the predecessor's construction. In 1779 the construction was completed and in 1782 the interior arrangement was finished. The interior paintings of the church with the imposing cover painting comes from the Brixner court painter Franz Anton Zeiller. However, the ceremonious inauguration of the church took place in 1808.
