Chapel of the Holy Spirit

The chapel of the Holy Spirit was built at the end of the thirteenth century and has been a historic monument since 1938. At first the gothic chapel was used as a location to hold celebrate and to hand out alms. Between 1972 and 2013 the chapel was home to the city’s puppet theatre.
