A beautiful old church with an intriguing rune stone. Open in the summer with members of the congregation on hand to offer guided tours and a welcoming cup of coffee. The cemetery surrounding the church is beautifully maintained.

This is a church from the middle ages (about 800) and the atmosphere is from that age. Then it was a catholic church, but in 1536 it became a lutheran church, got a very nice gallery and choir
