Loreto Prague, Prague

(4.2/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Among the many liturgical treasures stored at Loreto Prague, the most important is a glistening object known as the "Prague Sun," a star-shaped vessel embellished with over 6,200 diamonds. This Baroque religious complex has been one of Europe's major pilgrimage sites since 1626, consisting of a cloister, church, clock tower, and the so-called "Holy Hut." This brick structure, loosely modeled on an Italian original, contains a 17th-century statue of the Virgin Mary, as well as relief sculptures depicting her life as a young mother. The distinct chime of the bell tower is famous for producing a series of different melodies.

  • 10 minutes by foot past The Palace, very informative. Great artifacts to see and photograph. Note you will pay an extra fee to photograph and it is monitored, be warned! Worth it!!  more »
  • After the crowds at the castle this was a unexpected bonus. There is a real sense of serenity when you enter and everything is beautifully kept. A lovely relaxing visit that takes about an hour.  more »
  • Pleasant courtyard. Small chapel. A bit of a walk from the Castle but still on the hill. A fee is charged not expensive (apparently little other that shopping at high end stores is expensive in Prague...  more »

  • Quirky, religo fantasist shrine which was originally 'manufactured' in the C17th to entice and remove money from gullible pilgrims - and which is still doing the same today as they try to rip you off with an extra 'photography fee' on top of a (reasonable) entrance fee. Actually, we really enjoyed the over-the-toppery of the place, particularly the cherub-infested chapel (find the pair with the severed breasts on a salver!), but make sure you refuse to pay the photography fee and still take pictures anyway - as we did, quite happily!
  • Beautiful place with lots of interesting things to see, especially the crucified bearded lady, the 'Prague Sun' in the Treasury, the Santa Casa, and of course the stunning church. The photo permit is well and truly needed.
  • Like Notre Dame de Paris, very impressive!
  • It'd quite a walk from the city centre but if you're visiting Prague Castle then it's worth a look!
  • This place is another stunner, especially so if you're into architecture. Make sure to check it out.
