St Hammars old church

St Hammars old church

This church is one of the most well preserved early medieval churches in southern sweden. It was built around 1150 and before it was built there was a stave church here on this spot. A remnant from that church was built into the new one and in the attic one can find a beam with viking runes on it. The tower is from the 1200 century.
