This Church often labelled as the Baroque art gem of southwest Bohemia. Was built of the 17th and in the 18th centuries as Jesuit college. The prominent architects participated in its construction - K.I.Dientzenhofer, Luragho or D.Orsi and the church interior was decorated by J. Hiebl (fresco, altar, cupola).

Not only the church is amazing, but there are also catacombs with mummies which are worth to see. The exhibition is well designed with a lot of information about the history of the church.

Just love the detail on the buildings and carvings. They are doing some restorations but the number of pigeons on the facade spells trouble due to the acidic droppings.

Beautifully kept historical church in the Klatovy town square. Stunning inside. Try to be there for a Sunday service if that's your thing.
