Brno - Church of the Finding of the Holy Cross

This is part of the Capuchin monastery, a simple early Baroque building, consecrated in 1656. Although it seems quite plain from the outside (true to the spirit of the Capuchin), the artistic and historical furnishings of the church are very valuable. This is especially true of the main altar painting by Dutch painter Joachim Sandrart (1606-1688), as well as paintings on the side altars and polychrome wood carving of the Madonna from the early 15th century.
