  • Discovered on a guided tour of the Avantgarde, great baroquisee Church (good, must love the baroque because there it is loaded). The visit is fast, you have to stay between the strings. Back in this Basilica at night for a concert of organ (superb instrument). And there is great... the frame, the music (before and after the concert, you can walk in the Basilica because there are more strings). As you turn your back on the organ, a video shows you the game of hands and feet of the organist. Interesting at first but eventually it distracts a little listening.

  • It was a bit ornate for me, but a nice visit. Interesting mummified severed arm near the entrance – rather grisly.  more »

  • This is an extremely ornate baroque era church. It is a big contrast to the nearby Tyn Church, which has far more simple interior. Here is the story of the mummified arm, courtesy Wikipedia: "There is also a mummified forearm to the right of the tomb entrance, dating back over 400 years. The arm is the arm of a jewel thief who tried to steal from the high altar, which has a statue of the Virgin Mary. It is believed that when the thief tried to steal the jewels, Mary grabbed his arm and would not let go, therefore his arm was cut off by monks."
  • Beautiful church. No entrance fee.
  • Baroque? Anyday!
  • Beautiful church with a moral story to tell with mummified hand
  • Great building with a fun story of the mummified arm
