This Church is also located in the Town Square. Lucky for me, it was closed when I first went to look, but later on it was open, so I was able to go inside.
It's another building in Renaissance Baroque style, built between 1634 - 1671. Inside, even though a dull, grey colour, it did have nice piece's of work and a lovely stucco ceiling.
The Altar painting with the Holy Virgin Ascension is a copy of the Rubens original!
Two new bells were put onto the tower in 1992 to symbolize the reconciliation between the Czech citizens of Valtice and original German ethnic, expatriated to the neighboring Austria after the World War II. The original bell from the Holy Virgin Ascension Church can now be seen in the corridor of the Valtice Castle.
