    Probably no visitor to the old town of Munich can overlook the bright yellow monument on Odeonsplatz. The history of the Theatinerkirche began with the bride's election of the Elector Maximilian I of Bavaria for his son Ferdinand Maria. Henriette Adelheid of Savoy from Turin, Italy was considered to be very pretty, was Catholic and spoke German, which was important to the Bavarian royal family. The 1650 closed connection of the two then only 14 years remained childless for a long time and the yearning for a crown prince was great.
    So great that Henriette Adelheid made a vow to have the "most beautiful and largest" church built as thanks for the birth of a son ...

    The Theatinerkirche is actually called St. Kajetan and is one of the most beautiful baroque churches in Munich.

    Theatinerkirche is her name because her patron, the St. Kajetan von Thiene (1480-1547), with some other priests the Theatinerorden founded, which supervised the church until 1801.

    The catholic church St. Kajetan and Adelheid in Munich, called Theatinerkirche, was till 1801 court and monastery church of the Theatinerordens, starting from 1839 court and Kollegiatstift and is looked after since 1954 by Dominikanerorden. It is the first church built in the style of the Italian High Baroque in Old Bavaria. The church building in the Theatinerstraße 22 is located in the northeast of the Kreuzviertel at the Feldherrnhalle and today belongs to the ensemble of Odeonsplatz. An important example was the mother church of the Theatine Order Sant'Andrea della Valle in Rome.Source: wikipedia
