    The earliest building in the huge complex of the Clementinum is St. Salvator church, located at the western end, with a magnificent facade to Krizovnicke namesti. This church was built 1578 - 1602 and combines late Gothic and early Renaissance architecture.

    The impressive facade with sculptures by J. G. Bendl is a work of Carlo Lurago and Francesco Caratti, the first a well-known and busy architect in Prague.

    St. Salvator Church is a part of the oldest Czech Jesuit College, the Clementinum.
    The Church was originally built by the Jesuits in the Gothic style between 1578-1601, although now there are Baroque features added between 1649-1654. The Baroque façade has porticos decorated with sculptures of saints and one of the Virgin Mary in a niche.
    Inside are three very high aisles, with galleries and a dome painted with frescos. In the crypt under the church, Father Koniáš, the “destroyer of Czech books”, and Bohuslav Balbín, the “defender of the Czech language” are buried.

    St. Salvatore has two organs which are played at Mass and during classical music concerts, which run throughout the year. Information on what Concerts are on and prices can be found on the website.

    Close to St. Francis' Church is St. Saviour's Church. It was built around 1600 in Renaissance and Baroque style. If you walk down the street next to the church you come to Karlúv Most (Charles Bridge).

    As you approach Charles Bridge from the Old Town, don't miss the 16th century St. Salvator church, which is part of the Klementinum (Jesuit College).
