The Loreta

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 this!!
