Guided tour of the Chapel of Decollation of St. John the Baptist and the Martin's Casemates
Church of Decollation of St. John the Baptist
The Gothic St. John the Baptist Church was built in the second half of the 14th century as a two-nave hall-type edifice set inside the ramparts. This remarkable church survived the Hussite Wars but the transformation of Vyšehrad into a Baroque fortress in 1653–1727 proved fatal to it. Today, modest fragments of the church remain in the mound of the bastion ramparts behind the Baroque chapel of Virgin Mary in the Wall built on the initiative of the Vyšehrad Chapter in 1764.
