  • Part of our trip to Sweden, we arrived at the ruins of the Alvastra past. A graceful and mystical place where here French Zisterstienser monks occupied the site in the year 1143. It was the first monastery and the second oldest monastery in Sweden. The monastery became the largest ecclesiastical landowner of Sweden over time. Truly an impressive history. Should you pass through a visit is a must.

  • However, afflicted with such amazing stories in the time of our nation's birth. Evocative. Well exposed. Check out the walnut tree.

  • Historical site from the 1100 's. Here one can truly admire the architects and builders, the vaults are masterpieces. To get an insight into how the monks lived and lived. To walk around the ruins and let your imagination play was a pleasure. It is possible to take a guided walk around the ruins.
