Church of St. Francis and Bernardine, Vilnius: 23 reviews and 38 photos
There was late Baroque main altar at the end of the nave of the Church of St. Francis of Assisi (Bernardinai). It was quite large, wooden and in natural wood colour.
I got to know that originally there were 11 wooden altars but probably... someone needed wood (for fire) in 40' or 50'. Well, the altars were still renovated or rather reconstructed in 2004.
Address: Maironio gatve 10, Vilnius
Directions: From the Cathedral Square walk Pilies gatve (Castle Street), turn first stree left (Bernardinu gatve), churches at its end, across Maironio gatve.
