St. Joseph Church is a beautiful Prague baroque church on Lesser Town.

The church of St. Joseph with a dome and a monumental facade in the Dutch style was built in 1686-1692 by the architect Abraham Parigi by the convent of Barefoot Carmelite Nuns. Above the entrance you can find a relief of the Habsburg Eagle with the letter "L", which reminds us of Emperor Leopold under whose reign the church was built. The painting of the "Saint Family" at the main altar is the work of famous baroque master Petr Brandl.

 

The church of St. Joseph and the convent are protected as the Cultural Heritage of Czech Republic.
