  church of our lady beneath the chains
by doug48

the church of our lady beneath the chain is the oldest church in the little quarter. it was founded by king vladislav II in the 12th century. vladislav presented the church to the knights of st. john. this fortified monastery guarded the little quarter approach to the old judith bridge. in the 14th century the original romanesque building was demolished and the twin towers were erected that are seen today. a must see attraction in the church is karel sketa's painting of the virgin mary and st. john comming to the aid of the knights of malta in the battle of lepanto.
