The construction of the Ursuline Convent was carried out in the middle of the 18th century according to the plans of the outstanding Baroque architect Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer. It was founded on a polygonal layout, in the axis of which a church with a tower of 19 m in diameter was to be built. However, work was stopped for financial reasons. According to the original project, only three wings of the monastery building were built.

At the turn of the 20th century, only a chapel stood on the southern wing of the building in place of a monumental church. The monastery served for the education of young women, but in 1950 the nuns were driven out of here. After 1989 the building was once again returned to the order. Today it houses the church grammar school and in a part of the complex it is possible to learn about the history and present of viticulture in the Kutná Hora Region.
