The church was mentioned for the first time 1220. She is the oldest Jakob church of Tirol. After the battle of Calven 1499 she was set on fire from the Swiss. The Gothic church was built around 1570. She burned down to the 2nd time, this time from French, 1799. She collapsed to ruin and was of the shrubbery more than is, merely the vault stood firm. In the course of restoration through the new owners, Fam. Rizzi from Latsch, the church interior was examined in 1993 by the country memorial office and parts of a small predecessor church uncovered. The importance of these finds in Romance mural painting, extends long beyond the border. The 3 fresco groups which were put together from the fragments received as regards color well and which are to which be seen at the church now are unique.
