This comparatively small stone church was built in about 1680 on a hillock on a road leading to Priekule manor. During World War II the church was completely destroyed, like the most of the city. The church was restored during 1995 through 1998. The altar, interior design and wood carvings are made by the students of Riga Crafts School.
There is an old legend related to the Priekule Lutheran church about the famous Priekule Icarus, who made the flight from the church tower with self-made wings.
