Did you know that Jūžintai St. archangel Mykolas church is one of the few examples of late baroque in Lithuania and the only one in the Baltic States where a monastery operated. The canons of penance were housed in eight cells behind the central altar. Only small square windows on the outer wall betray that there are units behind them where monks once knelt and repented. In rooms there was enough space only to lie down. The monastery operated even until 1832. Under the church there are cellars where the founders of the church are buried.
