The Catholic church from Șimleul Silvaniei was built in 1532 by Transylvania's voivode Báthory István and his wife Telegdy Katalin.
A year later in this church was baptized their son Istvan, who over the years became prince of Transylvania and king of Poland. The joy caused by the child's birth was short because after six months the old Báthori dies. The Báthoris lived in Șimleu and they supported the Catholic Church.
That's why the catholic population remained in great number even at the beginning of XVII century when the king commands that the churches to pass in the property of the majority Christians. Thus the church remains Romano-catholic.
In 1660 the Turkish burnt all the localities and churches which they met in their way to Oradea. Șimleul Silvaniei didn't had a better fate. The church is rebuilt in 1666 with the financial support of the widow of Prince Rákóczi György the IInd Báthori Zsófia.
The church has a main altar and two secondary ones donated by The Varjús as the inscription above it is showing it. The tower was built in 1780 and the organ in 1984. On the altar's ark, brought from Poland, year 1606 can be read.
