Church of Our Lady Victorious

this Sight was last updated on 27 Sep 02

The Church of Our Lady Victorious (Kostel Panny Marie Vitezne in Czech) is the home of one of the most famous Catholic images in the world, the Infant Jesus of Prague. It is a wax statue which has been said to work miracles throughout history and whose origins are murky.
Housed in a glass case on the right side of the Church, the infant has 380 different outfits and his clothes are changed daily by the local Carmelite nuns.
Though the Church itself pales in significance next to its most prized possession, it is another breathtaking work in the Baroque style, and in fact was Pragueís first Baroque building.
Catholic masses.
