The Piarist order came to Cracow in the second half of the 17th century, and their church was built from 1718 to 1728 by Kasper Bazanka.

The present shape of the facade was made by Franciszek Placidi and dates from 1759 to 1761. Placidi developed Bazanka's project, deriving from the situation of the church.

The facade is based on the Il Gesu church in Rome, but aiming to enhance the frontal effect, the architect added a decorative top storey and flattened the divisions of the elevation.
