Loreto Prague, Prague

4.1
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.

    Don't understand why this site, be a prominent site in Prague. This is an ordinary Church, like so many others, without great interest. There are places in Prague, much more interesting to visit.

    Entry 150 CZK extra 100 kronor per person if you want to take pictures (and do not). In the cloister there is the reproduction of the House of our Lady of Loreto, and a neo-baroque chapel with no special insights. Upstairs a precious collection of monstrances, crosses, and other relics. Honestly not particularly striking. If you do not enter save 6 euros.

    The complex is full of things to see and full of curiosity: the Church of the Nativity, carillon, bearded Lady, the Treasury, parent etc. It is located halfway between the Castle and the Hill Petrich. Worth a visit much more than other things present in Prague. It is a little pricey, we had to pay a share while having the Prague card.

    Did not go inside but after seeing this church on google maps I knew I had to see it and get some photos of it,. It was constructed between 1626 and 1621. It was designed by an Italian architect and is said to have a baroque facade.

    Right opposite Černín is the Loreta, a pilgrimage site for many. Walk through the front gates and the lies what is supposedly a replica of Santa Casa in Italy, a historical monument that carries its own legend as the house which the Virgin Mary lived. Legend has it that angels carried the house from Nazareth to Loreta during the crusades and this house in Prague is a replica. Look closer to the steeple and you'll see the Loreta carillon which chimes beautiful music on the hour. The Loreta was undergoing some external restoration during my visit but which is a shame, couldn't get a good look at the entire facade. The museum is still open.
