Remains of Duebrødre Hospital Church

Duebrødre Hospital Church was a church in Roskilde, Denmark. The church was built next to the hospital with the same name sometime in the 1200s. The hospital was closed and demolished in 1661 and the church closed that year too. The graveyard was used during the plague in 1711, and skeletons were discovered in 1944 during construction of air raid shelters in the area.

What's left today:
Nothing remains of the hospital today, but the foundtions of the chuch still remain today. The graveyard has been emptied and the skeletons were moved to another graveyard. The foundations now lie in a small grass area among some houses near the centre of Roskilde.
