Overview

The Church of Our Lady Beneath the Chain, or "Panna Marie Pod Retězem" was once a priory. A gift to the Knights of St. John courtesy Vladislav II, back then it was strategically positioned in the heart of the Knights' monastery, which kept vigil on what is now the Charles Bridge. It underwent a structural facelift in 1640 that lent it a distinctively baroque appearance, and it stands today in the Little Quarter, its two imposing towers dominating the surrounding area.
