The church constituted an architectural ensemble with the Jesuit Academic College, on which is today the central building of the "Babeș-Bolyai" University. The place of worship presents a strong contrast between a monumental and sober architecture on the outside, and a well -ornate, almost exuberant interior, a jewel of the baroque style. In front of the church was, until 1959, the statue of the Virgin Mary, a monument moved by the communist authorities behind the "St. Peter" Church in Cluj.
