The original church was built in the 13th century. The building we see today got its shape in 1876.

According to a folk tale, the church got its name because it was visible from afar.

The slender Western spire (architect Matthias von Holst, 1866), the altar painting “Christ on the Cross” (Johann Karl Ludwig Maddaus, 1853) and the modern painting (1903) on the medieval vaults of the choir bear witness to former close cultural relationships with Riga, the capital of Livonia.
