Helligåndskirken (the Church of the Holy Spirit) is situated on the busiest part of Strøget, Copenhagen's popular shopping street. It was built in the thirteenth century and has been used for various purposes. Initially it was built as a convent, but it has also functioned as a hospital. Now it is a church, and is also used for exhibitions and large book and record sales. An organ concert is held for the public every day at noon. Over the years, Helligåndskirken has been renovated several times, but most of the walls stand as and where they were originally built. This is the only Mediaeval building to have survived the great fires of Copenhagen's history.
