Theatinerkirche St. Kajetan (Theatine Church)

Between 1663 and 1768 the Theatine Church of St. Cajetan and its dome with two towers was built in Italian high-Baroque style, inspired by Sant´Andrea della Valle in Rome. The church was founded by Elector Ferdinand Maria and his wife, Henriette Adelaide of Savoy, as a gesture of thanks for the birth of the long-awaited heir to the Bavarian crown, Prince Max Emanuel. The couple handed the church over to the Italian Theatine Order.

The inside of the church is dominated by Italian Baroque architecture. In a small chapel there are several burial places. Alongside King Otto of Greece, all ruling members of the Wittelsbach family from Ferdinand Maria up to King Maximilian I were buried here
