Built in the 15th century and kept up well. Audio tours available. Note the alter screen with gold leaf, still the most expensive one made. And if you are an organ lover this one is impressive with 55 stops and 4200 pipes.

This is a very nice church built during the 15th century and it was inaugurated the same year as Christopher Columbus discovered America! Don’t expect the splendor of a Catholic Church, this is a Lutheran (although build when Sweden was a Catholic country) steeped in...More

The church is important as the central part of the Gammelstads Kyrkstad, but is not what makes this place so beautiful. Sure, worth a visit while you're there, but it's only a part of the whole. Several interesting facts about its history though.

This view from this church is very nice and the surroundings are relaxing. I went into the church just to see that there was an open bible, one in English, maybe Lappish, finnish, swedish of course , may be spanish and german.

Interesting church building from the period when Sweden was still catholic. It was a huge investment for the local people to build it almost 600 years ago.

A very interesting modernist appropriation of neogothic style: the lines are milder, the colors - lighter, and lamps and decorations refer to modernism, while general shapes are clearly gothic

..but I cannot say it's outstanding! Of course, if you are there, go for a visit, but not worth to go just for the church!
