The church was first mentioned in 1526, and it was rebuilt to its present-day form in 1765. On the left side of the nave there is a marble plaque built in, with all the most important dates for the church and the parish. 

Worth seeing are two stained glass windows by Marko Jeram. The mortuary is adorned by a graffito made after the design of Ivan Seljak Čopič. 

The Latin inscription on the church gates is interesting as well. It says: ‘To the great God and St. Urban, the pope and martyr, risen from the ruins of the bell tower.’ The inscription is a chronogram, which hides the Latin writing of the year 1766 – the year the bell tower was built up and of the consecration. The church was consecrated by the famous Ljubljana Prince-Bishop Ernest Amadej Attems.
