All Saints Church, Vilnius

(4.4/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
All Saints Church is a Baroque-style church in Vilnius, Lithuania. All Saints church was built between 1620 and 1630 and was adopted for Carmelites' needs. In the second half of the 17th century, the church was linked with a monastery and formed a single complex.HistoryA large old-regulation Carmelite monastery adjoins the church; it is built by adapting existing buildings. In 1631–32, the main two-storey building following the street was completed; there are also several buildings of a later period and a tow-storey novitiate house with a small courtyard at the city wall. In the 16th–18th centuries they actively participated in public life, held religious feasts and processions. In 1819 the Carmelites established a parochial school in the monastery. The Church of all Saints is at the end of a street where the main gate to the Jewish ghetto was. During World War II, there was a tunnel through the sewers connecting the church with the ghetto. The priest of the church would provide bread to be taken into the ghetto through the tunnel. He also hid some Jews smuggled out of the ghetto through the tunnel. It should also be noted that there were Christian Lithuanians who helped smuggle Litvaks food into the ghetto. In Soviet times the church housed a museum of folk art after the reconstruction between 1967 and 1975.

  • Church of All Saints is in Rudninku street. Lovely church just outside Vilnius Old Town. Worth a visit if you are this end of the town.  more »
  • A little away from the city center, red buildings and found images of luxury, is that imagine out. So, I think popularity among tourists is not so high.

  • Church of all Saints is remembered because it was first found in the path at the time of the beginning of exploring the city. In General, to draw the attention of the stands and on the exterior and Interior, but don't think that this object should be somehow especially to allocate among the vast numbers of similar churches in Vilnius. I was surprised to read in the recall that the Church only 40 years. Of course not, he does not look like this and, if I am not mistaken-17 century. Probably just a mistake because of the name, which may be repeated and repeated.
