Baroque town Litoměřice

If some of the Czech towns may use the Baroque name, it’s definitely Litoměřice.

The rebuilding of the town began with the sequence of events in 17th century. The town was damaged as a result of the Thirty Years' War and raids by Swedish troops. Due to the arrival of the Jesuit and Franciscan order and the establishment of the bishopric, the importance of the city was raised. It was reflected in the demands for architecturally valuable reconstructions of the town in the Baroque style. Many craftsmen and architects came to the town and created an influential guild, after Prague one of the largest in the country. Many important architects, especially of Italian origin, were involved in the reconstruction of the town, for example Bernardo Ferretti, Domenico Orsi, Ambrogio Balli and Antonio della Porta. Of all architects, Giulio and his son Octavio Broggio influenced baroque monuments in the town to the largest extent.
