In place of the originally planned Piarist monastery arose Loreta, a Baroque pilgrimage site. In 1740 a sacred foundation was established at Loreta for the purpose of supporting the Capuchin monk whose responsibility it was to hold a daily requiem mass for the deceased members of the Kinský family. In 1786 the pilgrimage site was abolished and in 1805 the chapel was torn down so it wouldn’t interfere with the practical use of the building: Loreta also served as a hospital, a poorhouse, and later also as a dwelling unit. The building has been a museum since 2001.
