St. Francis Church at Křižovnické Náměstí in Prague, Czech Republic

You will need to look up 135 feet to fully appreciate the dome of the Church of St. Francis of Assisi. The church was built in 1686 by the Knights of the Cross with a Red Star, members of the Third Order of Saint Francis. The O.M.C.R.S. is a small Catholic order established in Bohemia in 1233 to provide medical aid. Their motherhouse next to the church was constructed in the mid-13th century as a hospital. This religious order is the namesake for Crusaders’ Square. Křížovnické náměstí means Knights of the Cross Square.
