Not far from Františkovy Lázně there is the important pilgrimage site of Maria Loreto, built by the Jesuits in the 17th century. The baroque Loreto Chapel and the Holy Spirit Church in Starý Hrozňatov (Altkinsberg) are about 14 km behind Franzensbad.
Thanks to an extensive reconstruction, the sanctuary is now back to its original purpose. There are regular fairs here in the season - once in 14 days in Czech and once a month in German. In addition, there are German-Czech pilgrimages. During the season, Maria Loreto is open to the general public.
