Long Description:
Roku 1666 hrabe Martinic daroval radu Kajetanu zahradu pred branou Brevnovskeho klastera a v ni postavil kapli Navstiveni Panny Marie - kopie kaple v Alt Oettingu v Bavorsku. Po zruseni klastera Kajetanu presla zahrada do rukou hrabete Kounice, ktery ji pretvoril v krasny anglicky park. Ovsem jeho zene se nelibilo, ze by ji tam neustalo courali lidi jdou do kaple na bouhosluzby, takze hrabe dal kapli zbourat. Po zbourani lode jeho konani urady zastavily, protoze se tak delo bez jejich souhlasu. Takze zbyla jenom okrouhla kaple, ktera tam jako torzo stoji dodnes. Jak kaple vypadala drive je videt na kresbe z roku 1820.
