Anyone who is interested in Baroque art and architecture should visit the St. James Church in Prague near the Old Town Square. It is the most beautiful Baroque church in Prague, and attached to an important Franciscan monastic community.
The church, also known as Church of St. Jacob, was built for the Minorites monastery in 1232. Prague Old Town was founded at the same time. The church was rebuilt in Gothic style in the 14th century and it became a place of funeral ceremonies for Czech kings. In the 17th century Prague was occupied by French troops and they intentionally caused a fire, which destroyed a large part of the Old Town, including St James Church. This led to a reconstruction of the church in Baroque style in 1689.
The facade bears three large scale bas-reliefs. The scenes are very dynamic, veiled in celestial clouds and filled with cherubs, they represent the Apotheosis of St Francis, St James the Greater surrounded with pilgrims, and the Apotheosis of St Anthony of Padoua.
The Church of St James is very impressive. The majestic Gothic immensity of the building, harmoniously combined to a particularly sumptuous Baroque decoration, and its splendid pipe organ and famous acoustics, make it one of the most mesmerizing places in Prague.
