Rīgas svētās Marijas Magdalēnas katoļu baznīca (St. Mary Magdalene's Church, Riga) was initially built in 1260. The church is situated at the addresses 4 Klostera iela and 2 Maza Pils iela in Old town.
During centuries church was several times devastated and served to different confessions. initially it was Catholic church, since 1639 it was Lutheran church and since 1710 it was Orthodox church. Finally in 1922 new Latvian government transferred possession back to Catholics.
Nowadays it is surrounded by many buildings, so it is impossible to take picture of the whole church.
