Prague

Church of Our Lady Victorious

  Karmelitská 9      (+ 420) 257 53 36 46     more than a year ago
This house of worship was built by German Lutherans between 1611-1615. To the right of the entrance is a commemorative site to the 16th century Spanish nun, St. Therese of Avila, who along with friar John of the Cross, reformed the Carmelite order into what is known as the Discalced Carmelites. Further inside is the church's claim to fame, a 45cm high wax statuette of Jesus known as the Infant Jesus of Prague, which is a pilgrimage site of sorts - for its historical and religious importance, and a couple of unnamed miracles that have been attached to it.
