  • One of the earliest Christian sites in Scandinavia and possibly the oldest in Sweden the estate which was give to the monks in the 12th century is being excavated and the finds include one of the first (about the third) stone churches in Scandinavia. The viking age estate was Christianized as early as the beginning of the 9th century.
  • Was founded around between 1148 and 1190, and here buried in the abbey church: Canute I of Sweden, Eric X of Sweden, Eric XI of Sweden, Birger Jarl - the founder of Stockholm
  • Was at Kata farm in Sunday and must commend the dom built up there, lots of information boards for Kata and life there laying around at the time. Was very satisfied with the visit and learn get back!
