Karmelitenkirche St. Joseph und St. Maria Magdalena, Sanderstr. 12, 97070 Wurzburg, Bavaria Germany
The Carmelite Church of St. Joseph and St. Maria Magdalena in Würzburg was built by Antonio Petrini from 1662 to 1669. It was the first Baroque church of Würzburg, one that survived the tragic events of WW2. Approximately 500 people were sheltered from the bombing in the spacious crypt under the Church, where a child was born during the inferno. On March 16, 1945 , the vaults of the church, which served as a public air raid shelter were destroyed by bombs or a firestorm and the "by no means modest" furnishings burned almost completely. Don’t worry! The church was completely rebuilt by 1950 so you can continue discovering its hidden stories by looking around to find the answer to our challenge and advance to the next location.
