Färentuna Church

The original sections of this church were built in the late 1100’s. On top of the chancel the tower was constructed where the parishioners could take refuge during times of unrest. The sacristy was added on the north side sometime between the 1200’s and 1300’s. Major renovations were made during the mid 1400’s when the church was extended west. While widening the triumphal arch between the nave and chancel, charred wood was discovered in choir suggesting an earlier wooden roof was destroyed by fire.

Renovations during the 1600’s hid much of the church’s original medieval character though work in later years attempted to restore it.
