The whitewashed Gothic church, Holy Spirit Church, is said to be one of Tallinn’s most beautiful churches. And it has the city’s oldest public clock with carvings from 1684. The building itself is from the 13th century. Reminds me of the churches we visited in Riga – they were from around that time, too, the 1200s.

The clock dates back 1684.

It has a stepped gable, and a tower described as baroque.

It has baroque pews, a renaissance-era pulpit and the church’s highlight – an altar triptych called The Descent of the Holy Ghost.”
