The parish church of Satmar was promoted to cathedral by bishop Fischer IstvŠn at the beginning of the 19th century. This also led to a drastic enlargement of the building, for which parts of the old church had to be destroyed. The new nave is 37,2 m long, 12,1 m wide and 11,8 m high. The choir is 16,8 m long, 9.20 m wide, and ends on a half round apse. The dome is 14.5 m high.

The new front face f the cathedral is 15,8 m high. On both sides it's having a 40 m high tower with iron balconies and a dome shaped spire. Under the church there is a crypt.

The final shape of the cathedral come under bishop Ham JŠnos (bishop in 1827- 1857). The portico dates with it's large pillars from this period. The front carries statues of the Savior in the middle, right St. Peter and left St. Paul. On the loer part of the towers one finds statues representing Saint-Stephan and Saint Ladislaus, who were Hungarian kings.
