Church of St Gilles

The church was founded in 1371 on the site of an old Romanesque church. In 1420 it became a Hussite parish church but during the Counter-Reformation the Dominicans gained possession. There is a tomb of Vaclav Reiner, a painter who created the ceiling frescos.

The Monastery of the Order of Preachers (Dominican Order) is adjacent to St. Giles Church.
