Create an itinerary including Church of St. Theresa
The somewhat plain exterior of Church of St. Theresa belies the splendor of what's inside. Built by the Discalced Carmelite order in the 17th century, the church is one of the earliest Baroque buildings in Lithuania; its grand construction, using very expensive materials, is atypical for the monastic association. Today's interior was created by a local artist during the second half of the 18th century and links with the famous Gates of Dawn chapel. Inside the building, you can learn more about the church's namesake, St. Theresa, by studying the brightly colored frescoes that illustrate her life. Spend time admiring the high altar; it is considered one of the finest in the nation.

  • I am unclear the correlation of Gates of Dawn with this church but the entryway seemed to be connected together. We went into the church and sat through part of mass to take in it's grandeur.
