The Servite Church in Vienna:
"On September 16, 1638, Emperor Ferdinand III allowed the Servite Order to found a monastery in Vienna. Inspired by Italian architect Andrea Palladio, the church of the Servites was built by Martin Carlone and dedicated to the Annunciation to the Virgin. The foundation stone was laid on November 11, 1751 and the church was consecrated in 1760 though the interior decoration was completed later."
