The church, or its ancestor, dates back to the 13th century. In fact, where the present church stands there had earlier been two churches. The 13th century wooden one was disassembled, and another wooden one was built in the 17th century in the same place. In 1931 it was burnt down by a thunderbolt strike. The present church was erected between 1933 and 1940 in the Neo-Romanesque style, this time made of stone.
