Church of the Holy Trinity in Klášter

The Church of the Holy Trinity from 1668-1682 is one of the most significant Baroque sights in South Bohemia. The main wooden altar is ornamented with larger-than-life statutes of Czech patrons and a central painting of the Virgin Mary surrounded by the Apostles and saintly women who can see the secret of the Holy Trinity revealed. This altar is one of the largest altars in Central Europe. In the crypt under the church’s aisle is water from three springs which have drained through canals into one spring that rises to the surface near the church, similar to the well of St. Francis of Paola. This water has been attributed healing powers against all diseases, especially eye diseases. Locals and pilgrims seek it to this day. A unique and delicate wood carving of the Tree of Life, dating back to the middle of the 17th century, originated in the monastery and today it can be seen in the sacristy of the Church of St. John the Baptist in the Muzeum Jindřichohradecka (Museum of Jindřichův Hradec area) in Jindřichův Hradec. Tours of the church are available by appointment (by phone: +420 602 703 007) for groups of at least 5 people.
