Pažaislis Monastery

It is the most romantic spot in Lithuania. It is a real diamond of Lithuanian Baroque of the 17th century. Built by a wealthy, influential and very religious Pac family, the monastery many times suffered from wars. However, time failed to destroy the beauty created by Italian artists Giovanni Battista Frediani, brothers Pietro and Carlo Puttini, Joano Meri, Giuseppe Rossi and Florentine painter Michelangelo Palloni. Today it is revealed by music played under the vaults of the church – many concerts and music festivals are organised here, and the sisters of St Casimir safeguard the peace of the monastery.
