Loreto Prague

It is a pilgrimage site of the Prague Hradcany District that is standing opposite of Czernin palace on Loreto Square. Loreto complex consists of numerous chapels, a church, treasury and Santa Casa or the House of the Virgin Mary, which made it a popular place for pilgrims. Prague Santa Casa has the original stones from Nazareth and was constructed to mimic the first ever sight of this type from Italy. Another gem of Loreto complex is its Baroque Carillon, the last surviving Baroque musical instrument of its kind in Europe. Mozart and Frank Zappa played it! You can hear Carillon's beautiful melodies every hour sharp. The entrance fee to Loreta is 180 czk. It is opened every day from 9:30 till 16:00 in winter, and from 9:00 till 17:00 in summer.
