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 13th 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 everyday 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 medieval building to have survived the great fires of Copenhagen's history.
