St. Anne's Church
The St. Anne's Church is a monument of the Late Gothicism in Lithuania. It was built near the St. Bernardine Monastery in 1495 - 1500. According to arts historian D. Kačmažikas, the church was designed and built by Michael Enkinger. Pope Alexander VI issued an indulgence for the St. Anne's Church in 1501. The church lived through many terrible decades. It was destroyed and renovated, burned down and then rebuilt. Finally, in 1902 - 1909 the church was restored and in 1925 a parish was established. According to the design of an engineer Janina Bartkienė, the crumbling towers were strengthened in 1960 - 1970.
The St. Anne's Church has one nave and is of light and graceful forms. The most valuable is the main façade of the church – unique in the Brick Gothicism architecture. Thirty-three types of bricks were used to build the façade. The façade of the church has the structure of a gothic basilica, with harmonious proportions, and plastically accomplished, which is unsurpassable in the Brick Gothicism of the whole Eastern Europe.
