Ferdinando I purchased this wonderful building in 1562 for the first Catholic archbishop returned to Prague after the hussite wars. It replaced the old building of Mala Strana, destroyed during the war, and it is nowday the home of the archbishop of Prague. In the following period to the battle of the White Mountain the building symbolized the return of Prague under the Catholic dominion. The rich rococo facade was projected by Johann Joseph Wirch around 1760 for the archbishop Antonin Prichovsky, whose coat of arms decorates the wonderful portal.
