Alsike Kyrka

The earliest parts of this church are believed to date from the 1200’s and are built of brick. The tower was added probably round the 1400’s and is built of stone at the lower portions and brick at the top. The walls and vaults of the interior originally had murals, but sadly, only fragments remain. The church yard was locked so I didn’t get in to look for runestones, though my research for this info turned up that there was one up near the church door. This is also the sight for a modern day cloister.
