Bjälbo Church

| Translated by google translation |

Bjälbo is a medieval parish in 1100 - and 1300´s -belonging to the Bjälbo dynasty. The remains of an earlier wooden church has been encountered in archaeological excavations a 100 meters north of the present church. The current stone church was originally built in 1100´s with a rectangular nave and narrower chansel. The impressive tower, dated to 1220 according to dendrochronological studies, is unusually broad and strong. During the 1780´s  the medieval chancel and apse was demolished. The church got its present shape with a rounded korparti, rundbågiga large window openings and a high pitched roof covered with swarf is hipped to the east. The main entrance is through the tower to the west, but an entry is also centrally located on the south sidan. The church represents an area of national interest for cultural heritage conservation.

Visit Ingrid Ylva, Birger Jarl mother's house by climbing up the narrow stone stairs leading up to the tower.
