Step into history at Kretinga's Franciscan Monastery and the adjacent Virgin Mary Church, monuments to the Polish-Lithuanian triumph in the Battle of Kircholm. Surviving 400 years of upheaval, these sites house Lithuania's oldest door, earliest organ, Saint Anthony's miraculous painting, and Chodkevičius family crypts. Conclude with an ascent up the church tower for a sweeping view of charming Kretinga. And if one monastery isn’t enough for you, don’t fret – Kretinga, nicknamed Lithuania’s Vatican, has four more!
