Church of Our Lady beneath the Chain

This church, the oldest in the Little Quarter, was founded in the 1100s. Its name refers to the chain used in the Middle Ages to close the monastery gatehouse. Since then, a Gothic presbytery was added in the 13th century and two massive square towers dominating the surrounding area. In 1640 the church was given a Baroque appearance by Carlo Lurago. Two towers now contain some of the most prized apartments in Prague.
