It was built by Ulrich Materer. Its construction can be dated to 1580, and it is possible that a bell from 1588 hung in the tower.
However, with its broad cresting with sgraffito decor, it differs significantly from all other Renaissance bell towers in the Spiš region. In this sgraffito dιcor,we can see a hunting motif – the hunt of a rabbit, with a rose and a forget-me-not both central parts of the composition. Later, the text below the attic ledge was added – Soli deo HB 1629,“Glory to God alone.“ The church and bell tower are in the list of of national cultural heritage and are the property of the Catholic Church.
