The Ancient Church Of The Order Of Poor ClaresThe nunnery of the Poor Clares Order (XVII-XVIII) during the XIX century was closed for the Liturgies. After the World War II it suffered the same misfortune. In 1996 here was founded the Museum of. SacraL Baroque Sculpture — “The Art of Johann George Pinsel”. The workers of Lviv Art Gallery saved the sculptural works of this distinguished European master in 1960s -1970s. They were restored as the museum exhibits. These works are full of energy and spiritual power.
