Munktorp Kyrka

This church is actually two churches joined into one. The original church called David’s Church and was built around 1055. St. David was a monk who died in 1082 and monks remained at Munktorp which became Västmanland’s ecclesiastical center. According to tradition, St. David officiated baptisms. His remains were in a casket buried in the church, but were moved to Västerås cathedral in the 1400’s
