Burnt down in 1560 and 1609, it was re-built in 1612 according to the project of Albin Fontana, Italian architect. Its interior was thoroughly renovated at the beginning the existence of the new diocese and it was equipped with a new post-Counciliar altar, consecrated by Stanisław Napierała, Bishop of Kalisz, on 24 September 1997.
