REVIVED HISTORY of the PROPERTY
In the very heart of Telč, the city registered in the List of World Cultural and Natural Heritage by UNESCO, the reconstruction of major sightseeing - Konvikt of Holy Angels was completed at the end of 2001. The building has been through interesting evolution. As a part of the original medieval fortification of urban water fortress it was restored throughout the 16th century and became a part of Castle premises.
In the years 1660 - 1670 Konvikt was substantially reorganised for the needs of the Jesuit college. In 1668 the building became the seat of Konvikt of Holy Angels - Jesuit School (seminar) of church music. So far this period has been the most suitable usage of the building, which is a unique proof of mixed architecture of various functions in the body of town. In the 19th century there were flats of clerks. In 1865 a composer and a teacher Ludvík Grande was born here.
