The Boim Chapel, presently houses a branch of the Lviv Art Gallery. The historic name of the Boim Chapel is connected with the name of its founders, the family of Lviv merchants from the seventeenth century. The chapel was built over the course of 1609-1615. The architect is A. Bemer, and the sculptors are G. Scholz and J. Pfister. This late Renaissance building is located in the neighborhood of the Latin Cathedral, to the southeast of that church. It has features characteristic of Mannerism. This is the only chapel of the old Catholic cemetery that has been preserved to our days. From the south it is adjacent to the residential quarters of Halytska Street.
