"Church of St. John" St Johns Church Tip by Leipzig

St Johns Church, Riga: 19 reviews and 39 photos

  Church of St. John
by Leipzig

In 1587 the altar was installed. I was told that two monks were walled behind the altar at their own will. Small vents enabled to provide them with food and drinks. They wished to be canonized but the Pope never did. Both died there. A legend?
