Suntak Old Church

The old Suntak Church is one of the best-preserved Romanesque churches in Sweden. The building was built in the mid-12th century from plastered and calcareous sandstone. The interior contains medieval wall paintings, the oldest of which can be dated to the end of the 14th century.

Brahe Church

Erected as a royal church at the beginning of the 17th century, it took the place of an earlier church that was built in the 12th century. All that Magnus Brahe retained from the older church was the beautifully ornamented door to the sacristy.

Skara domkyrka

Skara Cathedral was probably built in the 11th century but only took on its Gothic appearance in the 14th century. It was restored between 1886 and 1894 by Helgo Zettervall. The cathedral contains the Gregorian manuscript of the Skara Missal, completed around 1150, which is considered to be the oldest notation of Swedish liturgical music.

Bottnaryd Church

Built in the 17th century to replace a medieval church in the same place, the new church still contains a baptismal font dating from the Middle Ages. The altarpiece was created in northern Germany in the early 17th century and the wood-carved pulpit with canopy dates from 1670.
