Church of St Theresa

This is one of the early Baroque buildings in Lithuania. The façade of the Church of St. Theresa is attributed to Constantino Tencalla, the court architect of Wladyslaw Vasa. The example of Maria Della Scala – a church of the Discalced (Barefoot) Carmelites located in Rome – was used for this project. Expensive construction materials – Swedish sandstone, marble, and granite – were used in the façade of St. Therese’s Church.The Church of St. Theresa belonged to the Monastery of the Discalced Carmelites. The Carmelites is a religious order with eight hundred years of history. The name of the order comes from Mount Carmel in Palestine. In the 16th century, a reformed branch of the order – the Discalced Carmelites, famous for their mystical theology – separated from the mainstream order.

The present interior of the church was created in the second half of the 18th century and has been preserved. The impressive high altar is among the most amazing in Lithuania.
