This is a charming
memorial to the cult of the baroque pilgrimage. The Loreta
treasure, an exceptional collection of precious artefacts,
originated from the gifts and sacrifices of the pilgrims.
The photograph features the Bell
Tower. Inside the tower are a set of 30 bells cast 1691-94
in Amsterdam by Claudy Fremy. When in this part of town (Loretánske
náměsti), the Loreta is well worth a visit.
After a tour around the Loreta I
strongly recommend that you eat at the restaurant
nearby. Small and cosy, with excellent food and pleasant
service (Vaclav Havel has trout in this restaurant). Inside you
will see adorned on one of the walls many autographs by Czech
National Ice Hockey players! Now who would want to miss
