A little higher than the Château, Place Notre-Dame-de-Lorette is a haven of calm and peace. This important pilgrimage site was built between 1626 and 1750 by the family of the famous Dientzenhofer. The ensemble is not without evoking Italian churches: the architect had indeed been instructed to take inspiration from the sanctuary of Loreto, near Ancona, which he succeeded wonderfully and explained the name of the church. Its tower houses a set of 27 bells that play a melody every hour for several minutes, gently punctuating the life of the neighbourhood.

Inside, the sanctuary, also called "Santa casa", is, according to legend, one of the houses of Nazareth that the angels deposited all over the world. There are more than fifty Santa Casa in Bohemia and all of them are the subject of important pilgrimages, even if none of them have reached the aura of the Santa Casa de Loretto in Italy.

The interior is a masterpiece of decoration. Paintings, gildings, sculptures and relics form a charged but always very harmonious whole. Don't miss the "Prague Sun" in the Treasury Room, a dazzling golden monstrance with flaming rays set with 6,222 diamonds. For enthusiasts, the treasure also houses an impressive collection of cult objects assembled over the past centuries from various regions and countries in Europe. An invaluable religious (and financial) value!

Superbe... de l'extérieur
Magnifique église située au sommet de la colline du château . En revanche elle est payante, comme quasiment tout à Prague donc nous sommes restés à l'extérieur.

Très belle église baroque, située à quelques pas du château L'extérieur est magnifiquement décoré avec des bas reliefs et ses couleurs ressortent encore mieux avec quelques rayons de soleil. Il contraste avec l'intérieur du sanctuaire, tout en sobriété. Le carillon surprend par sa douceur.

Petite place proche du château qui abrite l'église du même nom à l'architecture splendide et dont la visite est très agréable.

Petite place dans les hauteurs du Nord Ouest de Prague
Le'unique point d’intérêt est la visite de l'église Notre-Dame-de-Lorette qui vaut vraiment le détour (il faut compter 15 à 20 minutes de marche depuis le Pont Charles)

Belle petite place sur les hauteurs de Prague avec d'un côté le Palais Cernin, avec une architecture peu intéressante et massive, et de l'autre, la très jolie église Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, jaune verte et blanche. Ses couleurs ressortent encore mieux les jours de neige.
