Farhult Church

The church has a frame of granite and consists of a nave that ends in a semi-circular apse to the east. The tower with stepped gables is on the west end of the church. The frames of the windows and doors are carved from sandstone.

The original church was built at the end of the 1100’s or beginning of the 1200’s in Romanesque style. The end of the 1400’s saw brick arches installed in the navel and chancel. During that same century the small medieval windows were walled off and the tower was added on the west end. Originally, a narrow exterior stair case on the south wall gave access to the tower’s upper floor. Later an interior stairway was built and the exterior one removed.
