This sanctuary is one of my favourite places in Prague. It has a peaceful atmosphere, seemingly far away from the troubles of this world. The Casa Santa, the actual sanctuary, was built 1626-31 by Giovanni Battista Orsi and is decorated with absolutely beautiful stucco works. It is surrounded by cloisters. On their upper floor you have access to an amazing display of religious works of art. The Baroque church is also worth a visit.

Admission fee is 110 CZK. Since June 2010 taking photos is allowed - the fee is 100 CZK. No tripod, no flash.

Address: Loreta, Loretanske namesti 7.
Directions: Castle Hill (Hradcany), 5min west from Prague Castle.
