All Saints Church, Vilnius
(4.4/5 based on 50+ 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.

  • Rained well but still a very nice building and one of the more beautiful in the city. If you need to make a choice that would be there between this!

  • There are so many details! a journey of beauty and faith. I was lucky enough to hear the organ! It is also a refuge, a break, a lot of peace.

  • Roman Catholic Church of all Saints built nearly four decades ago. We lived in a hotel next to the gate of dawn, hotel Domus Maria is a former monastery of the Barefoot Carmelites. Church of all Saints earlier too belonged to the bosonogim Carmelites. 79 in Vilnius, temples and churches, this church is small and stands out for its chetyrjohjarusnoj square bell tower. The Bell Tower is visible in the Arch of the National Philharmonic. We went inside, Pylimo street of sculptures like the Easter egg stand under the arch, look to the top of the dome, always attracts the attention of the body here is small. Inside the beautifully, as in all the churches and temples of the capital of Lithuania.
