The design was based on the Il Gesú Church by da Vignola in Rome, but the cross aisle with cupola was left out. The church was built in 1670-86, to the design by Jan Dominik Orsi de Orsini. A flood in 1997 exposed a fresco by Domenico Gagina from 1681. The chapel features a Baroque reliquary of St Victoria, renovated in 2006. A sensitive revitalisation of the 300 years old timberwork and new roofing were completed in 2007. The bodily remains of the foundress of the Jesuit college, Kateřina Zoubková of Zdětín, are in the tomb in front of the high altar.
