The first church at Sura Mare comes from 1332. The present church is also very old, it was built at the end of the 12th century, as evidenced by the old Romanesque style it was built in. From the original look we can see today the three-ship system, which is divided by a series of arcades. During the fortification it underwent several transformations, among other things when the defense belt was built above the sacristy.

The tower in 1854 reached its current shape. Only a portion of the wall on the western side and a defense tower left the old fortress. Remains of frescoes were discovered in 1979.
