At the Black Ox (At the Black Eagle, At St. Lucas) - Loretánské Square 1/107, Hradčany
Loretánské Square 1/107, Hradčany
Formerly it was probably a Gothic townhouse which has a peak Baroque façade from 1730 with a plastic painting of the patron of all painters St. Lucas who is making a painting of Virgin Mary with baby Jesus. Painted windows are interesting too, they show how Baroque architects attempted to preserve symmetry of the building at all times, even if it meant creating false portals, windows and other elements. Inside the house there is the traditional Hradčany pub at the Golden Ox.
