Infant Jesus of Prague, Prague

4.4
Inspirational and architecturally significant, Infant Jesus of Prague dates back to the 17th century and remains a fine example of Baroque architecture. Most visitors come to see a waxwork statue of infant Jesus, brought here from Spain in the 1620s. The church's main claim to fame, this figure is said to have protected the city from plague outbreaks and the destruction caused elsewhere by the Thirty Years' War. The focus of worldwide attention, the figure attracts a steady stream of religious travelers, arriving from as far away as Latin America. Don't miss the onsite museum, housing dozens of costumes used to dress up the statue for various religious occasions.

  • The Church of Santa Maria da Vitória do not call much attention in the beautiful surroundings of Malá Strana. It's not very easy access, sumptuous and without charges. The small statue of the infant Jesus of Prague is somewhat overshadowed by the altar. Interestingly I found in the Church an image of our Lady of Aparecida. On the second floor an exhibition of clothes that the child uses and on which occasions. Despite the great interest, especially for Catholics, the Church is full. The body shop sells more expensive than the Church across the street.

  • Wash the 47 cm high figurine, is probably of Spanish origin in this church honored. It would have done wonders. The infant Jesus has over 100 robes, coming from all over the world and three gold crowns. A part of the vestments are on display in a room above the Church (if you get past the altar with the sculpture you see right in the corner a staircase that leads you into this space).

  • This that point ended up our free tour of Prague Castle. The Church is austere, simple. Is very visited by devotees of the infant Jesus of Prague. There are holy cards in several languages as souvenirs. Do not charge them, but you can leave a donation.
