Known more commonly as the Carmelite Church, this structure features a stunning neoclassical facade originally created in the 18th century. It features twin belfries and is most notable for being the site of Fryderyk Chopin's first employment as he was invited to perform a recital on the church's organ. The church is set directly next to the Presidential Palace. Those interested in a tour with the resident cleric should call ahead to arrange an afternoon visit.
