The medieval St. Alban's Priory was located at Albani Torv roughly halfway between St. Canute's Cathedral and St. Alban's Church. A modern stone plaque located at the site of the former church's altar is the only visible sign of this structure.

Graabrødre Abbey Church in Odense was part of Gråbrødre Monastery.

King Hans' queen, Christine, who lived in Odense around the year 1500, decorated the church with, among other things, Claus Berg's Altarpiece and had herself buried here with her husband. Later, her son, Christian II, was also buried in the church. After the Reformation, the church fell into disrepair and in the early 1800s it was demolished and the burial grounds moved to St. Canute's Church. At the end of the 1800s, a smaller chapel was built at Gråbrødre Hospital in a different place than the previous church.
