PIARIST CHURCH OF THE DISCOVERY OF THE HOLY CROSS
Piarist Church of the Discovery of the Holy Cross Baroque educational centre for poor children.

The Piarists were an order of pedagogues, whose aim was to educate poor children. The Piarist grammar school in Litomysl was opened in 1644. In 1714 the owner of the Litomysl demesne, Count Franz Wenzel von Trautmannsdorf, began to build a large new church and new schools.
The architects were Nicola Rossi, Giovanni Battista Alliprandi (who is also buried in the Provost church in Litomysl) and Frantisek Maxmilian Kanka. The school (today's museum and gallery) was completed in 1719 and the church three years later. A number of other famous artists contributed to the decoration of the church - the statues of the four evangelists and Sts. Wenceslas and Prokop were made by the workshop of Matyas Bernard Braun, the vaulting of the dome was painted in 1728 by Vaclav Jindrich Nosek and the picture at the main altar was the renowned Italian artist F. Trevisani.
The church became an integral part of the panorama of the city, and is one of the most important baroque buildings in the region.
