The convent  in Imbramowice was founded in the years 1223 to 1226 by Bishop Iwo Odrowąża. Unfortunately, the oldest buildings from this time have not survived. According to the local belief they were destroyed during the Tatar invasions. In the walls of the present church there are preserved remains  of  brick and stone themes of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The destruction of the entire complex of buildings of the convent was the result of a great fire in 1710. Then the Norbertine abbess, Zofia Grotówna, took the effort to rebuild the convent. The main designer of the building was a renowned architect, Kasper Bażanka. The result of the work is an impressive late baroque complex, which includes: the church of St. Peter and Paul, the Norbertine convent, granary and annexe, house chaplain and gatehouse with statues of the Virgin Mary, St. Norbert and St. Augustine and the wall surrounding the property. The most attractive feature of the church interiors are the altars integrated into the architecture and the numerous paintings on the walls depicting the adoration of Christ and the Virgin Mary, the figure of St. Norbert and scenes from the history of the Norbertine orders. Equally interesting are the paintings in the altars with the most famous image of Christ showing his wounds. The picture, considered to have miraculous powers, is an object of worship. The convent also stores other image: "Madonna in a Garland of Flowers," by Jan Breughel the Elder, a Flemish painter of the first half of the seventeenth century.

In the vicinity of the convent, there are several chapels of the eighteenth century, with the figures of St. John of Nepomuk and the Man of Sorrow to name but a few. The most characteristic chapel is the one built of brick on a mound at the parting of the roads.
