Jesuit Church

Jesuit Church, Lucerne Overview

The Jesuit Church built in the 17th century, is regarded as the first Sacral Baroque church built in Switzerland.

This church was built as a symbol of resilience of the Catholics in their movement of counter reformation, against the protestants, by the Jesuits. It is quite a spectacle to look at. While it was always the symbol that it was built to be, today, the church is barely ever used for any relgious activity, and is used for concerts and in general a tourist attraction. The architectural details inside the church, such as the St. Aloysius reliquary, the Ignatius chapel, the Main Organ which was built in 1980, and the 'Glory of St. Francis Xavier' painted on the ceiling, are breathtaking. As of now, the church is closed till December 2016 for works on the ceiling.
