Loreta church, Prague, Czechia

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

A remarkable place consisting of a cloister, the church of the Lord’s Birth, a Holy Hut and clock tower with a world famous chime that has been situated in Prague Hradčany for more than 300 years.

The previous generations built the Prague pilgrim place Loreta, a former church of the Lobkowitz family (the founders of the church). The following generations have been taking care of this heritage. The history of Loreta includes not only the best of baroque but it has also preserved the traces of spiritual life in our country. The carillon, a very precious musical instrument, extended the number of people delighted by Loreta. The visitors furthermore have access to the Loreta jewels with a unique collection of precious gifts of the Holy Virgin Loreta. We hope that the offered programme will enable you a deep spiritual and cultural experience.

Since the foundation of Loreta, the Capuchin monks (whose monastery with the Church of the Holy Angel Virgin is situated in the neighbourhood) have taken care of Loreta and of the pilgrims. Currently a part of the monastery is accessible as the House of prayer used for spiritual exercises.
