Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary

This has been a parish church since the founding of the town. Its appearance has changed over the centuries, and the current appearance of the church is the work of architect Josef Fanta, who returned the church to its Gothic appearance at the beginning of the 20th century. On the main altar, there is the miraculous painting of the Virgin Mary of Klatovy. The miracle of shedding blood happened in 1685, and from since then, Klatovy has been an important place of pilgrimage in southwestern Bohemia. During the tour, you will learn about the history of the miracle, visit the crypts under the church and climb up to the gallery of the church.
