Church of St. Theresa, Vilnius

4.8
The somewhat plain exterior of Church of St. Theresa belies the splendor of what's inside. Built by the Discalced Carmelite order in the 17th century, the church is one of the earliest Baroque buildings in Lithuania; its grand construction, using very expensive materials, is atypical for the monastic association. Today's interior was created by a local artist during the second half of the 18th century and links with the famous Gates of Dawn chapel. Inside the building, you can learn more about the church's namesake, St. Theresa, by studying the brightly colored frescoes that illustrate her life. Spend time admiring the high altar; it is considered one of the finest in the nation. Put Church of St. Theresa at the forefront of your travel plans using our Vilnius trip planner.

  • The Church of St. Theresa is located at dawn in the ancient city of Mo hundred meters, outside the church is too special, but the inside is very refined, with rose color as the main color, present a sense of fantasy

  • Located close to the gates of the gate, it is not a relatively simple, gray, baroque façade. The interior surprises visitors with the glamour of rococo decorations.
