The beginnings of the church reach back to the 14th century,
but the church was first mentioned only in 1623. In the site
of an older building, a new church was built in the middle of
the 17th century, and the polymath Janez Vajkard Valvasor
describes the Church of John the Baptist with three altars and
a Brotherhood of St. Anthony of Padua. During the reign of
Emperor Joseph II, the church was elevated to parish church
in 1788. After a fire in the middle of the 19th century, the
church was enlarged, and the Chapel of Mary was built in
place of the former side entrance beside the bell tower.
