Borghamn is the result of 1,000 years of quarrying. Monks drew his stone here when Alvastra monastery was built in the mid 1100's and even in our days are stone industries here. There are many fascinating traces of quarrying and from here, follow the stone path, either through Östgötaleden north to the canal or across Vättern to Karl's Fortress.
