Straßburg - Hl. Geist

Straßburg - Hl. Geist
Gerold of Friesach founded a hospital for the poor just west of Straßburg in 1337, when he was Bishop of Gurk. The round early-Gothic church may have been part of this infirmary already then, it was mentioned the first time in 1407.

The church got enlarged and altered later. Unfortunately it was locked.
