It's really nice to walk around the church and feel the history radiate from the building. Looking at the "grafitti" from the 17th century gives a friendly feeling that people back then were not so different from us.

It was raining the morning we were in Ystad visiting the sites from the Wallander novels. We popped into the church to dry off and read our tourist info. Enjoyed the church, being dry and a moment of quiet.

Santa Maria church is 750 years old. You can see wunderful pictures and old wooden chairs. The church is situated in the center of the town, near the big square. If you come to Ystad you must visit it.
