A Catholic chapel belonging to the Portuguese Embassy at 24 Golden
Square existed here in the early 18h century. In 1747 the Portuguese
Embassy moved elsewhere and the house and chapel were taken over
by the Bavarian Embassy. The chapel was severely damaged and its
contents burnt during the Gordon Riots of 1780. The present chapel
was opened on 12th March 1790, the feast of St. Gregory the Great,
and has been served ever since by the London dlergy. In 1854 it
became a parish church, with the title "Church of the Assumption,"
but continued to be known as the Bavarian Chapel until the early
20h century. The sanctuary, built around 1880, was intended to be
part of a reconstruction of the interior that was never carried out.
The chapel is the only remaining Catholic Embassy Chapel of the
Penal Times.
