The Loreto (Loreta) was built in 1626 as part of the Catholic campaign to attract the Czechs back to Catholicism. Its construction followed the battle of the White Mountain, where the Czech Protestants were defected and the Catholics retook control over Prague. It has become a renowned place of pilgrimage. Its impressive Baroque Bell Tower houses a carillon of not less than 30 bells cast in Amsterdam by Claudy Fremy in 1691.
