Holy Spirit (sv Duch), Old Town, Prague

Built in the first half of the C14, a Benedictine foundation, this is the closest catholic church to the Jewish Quarter, and to the NE is the Spanish Synagogue. Single nave and slightly lower and narrower apsidal chancel. Following a fire in 1689 the church was given a baroque makeover when rebuilt. The tower on the north side of the church dates from 1807. I cam e here on two different days and both times it was locked.
