T
he early Baroque Church of St. Francis (kostel sv. Frantiska Serafinskeho) was built in 1679 – 1685 on the foundation of the original Gothic church according to the design of French architect Jean Baptiste Mathey. His plans were of vital importance to the origins of Czech dynamic Baroque.
The church has two levels. The Baroque masonry of the lower church, with its stalactiform grotto accessible from the Gallery of the Knights of the Cross (Galerie krizovniku), contains the exposed remains of the original Gothic cathedral. The upper church has a wealth of painted, sculptured and skilfully crafted adornments that are dominated by the frescos of Vaclav Vavrinec Reiner and Jan Krystof Liska, who, together with Michael Leopold Willmann, created the altarpieces.

Today the Gallery of the Knights of the Cross is situated in the neighbouring early Baroque building of the hospital and general's seat of the Knights of the Cross with a Red Star. Gaudentio Casanova had it built according to plans that Carlo Lurago drew up in 1661. The Gallery houses a collection of excellent specimens of European goldsmithery (ZLATO) from the late Gothic era to the 20th century. From here it is also possible to enter the lower church and the well-preserved first pillar of the former Judith Bridge, the predecessor to Charles' Bridge.
