As it happened with most of the churches in Olomouc this chapel was closed. So I could only have a peek from the fences at the entrance. It looked lovely with an incredible painted ceiling.

This was an amazing priest who was tortured to death. The original rack can be viewed in the cellar. There is a great interactive screen at the entrance which covers the history of John Sarkander, what led to his torture, death and sainthood.
