Bernardine Cathedral and Monastery, Lviv

Bernardine Cathedral and Monastery, Lviv (must see)

The Bernardine church and monastery in Lviv is located in the city's Old Town, south of the market square. The monastery and the Roman Catholic church of St. Andrew (today the Greek Catholic church of St. Andrew) now belong the Order of St. Basil the Great. In the 17th century the present-day church and monastery were constructed in the style of Italian and Dutch mannerisms. In 1733 the square belfry was added to the complex and in 1736 a monument to Saint John of Dukla, who died in the monastery in 1484, was built in front of the church. The interior was refurbished in the Baroque style in the years 1738 to 1740.
