Theatinerkirche – catholic collegiate munich church of saint cayetan. The Theatinekirche was both the court and order church of the Teatine Order. This is the first church built in the late Italian Baroque style.
The wife of Elector Ferdinand Maria Henrietta Adelaide of Savoy in 1659   vowed to build the most beautiful and valuable church at the birth of the heir. After the birth of Crown Prince and future Elector Max Emanuel in 1662, the Bologna architect Agostino Barelli was commissioned to design and build the church.
In 1663, the church was founded. The architect took as a model the main church of the Teatin Order in Rome – Sant Andrea della Valle. During the construction, a conflict arose between the architect, contractor, representatives of the Theatine Order and even the confessor of Henrietta Adelaide of Savoy, which led to the resignation of Barelli. Instead, Enrico Zucalli took over the work in 1664. He just had to decorate the outside of the church. He designed the drum of the dome of the church with a height of 71 meters and unusual towers. Along with this, he was engaged in the decoration of the interior decoration of the church. In 1674, work began with stucco molding. In 1675, the still unfinished church was lit up. The forms of the facade were discussed for a long time, these discussions did not come down to a single solution. Tsukalli built the towers according to his own design, completed the interior decoration. Until the completion of construction, it was directed by Giovanni Viscardi. Henrietta of Adelaide died in 1767 without seeing the church completed.
Only almost a hundred years after the consecration of the church, Francois de Cuvillier Sr. was designed the facade of the church in the Rococo style.
As a result all these building twists and turns of the facade was completed by the end of the 19th century, and the church and monastery formed a large quadrangular complex. There is a tomb near the church, where members of the Wittelsbach family, who ruled in Bavaria, are buried. 49 members of the Wittelsbach family are buried in the tomb.
