Lovely church and even more impressive inside. You can light candles and read up on the history and importance of the church. Impressed with the Greek iconography as well inside.

Interesting history (in their pamphlet), interesting sacred and historical items inside the church, serene and calm church when we visited. Worth revisiting.

We had the chance to attend a Luciatåg in this church and it was really nice. It doesn’t matter if you are religious or not, it was a unique experience. I also wanna mention that the people who administrate the church are super kind and you feel really welcomed there

This old church is impressive and it feels so great to walk there and to see it. If the old stones could tell stories, it were .... there are tunes around it and ruins of huge old churches. Sigtuna is such a great place!

The city of Sigtuna is worth visiting, it's a quaint small town by the lake. The church is beautiful, with the characteristic decorations of Swedish churches - the lovely mural paintings.

We chanced upon this church on a recent day trip to Sigtuna and found it to be very charming. It had a warm welcoming feel with interesting green carpeting in the altar area and was an interesting change to all the Baroque gilding we had seen earlier in our trip.

Mariakyrkan is definitely worth popping in for a short visit!

The Dominicans built a convent church in the first half of the 13th c, its age probably accounts for the architectural differences both inside and outside. The church was the first one in the area built of brick, the red hue standing out. Its style is something called Brick Gothic, a transitional phase between Romanesque and Gothic. Several rune stones can be seen near the church. It is the oldest building still in use in Sigtuna quite apart from being the best tourist site, meriting top marks.

This church is still in use and well kept. It is an unusual design from the outside. Inside there are a number of wall paintings and a well preserved painted ceiling.

While in Sigtuna we visited this great old church that has seen a lot of history go past and through it’s doors.
Apparently it is the oldest building in town still in use , over 700years old.
It sure makes a statement being quite big and very impressive, I noticed that a lot of the walls do not line up to well so over the years their must have been some movement but no cracking is noticeable .
I also was reading that this is the first building in Sweden where fire burned bricks were used instead of stone, the church is solid brick construction so many thousands were laid by the brickies of the day here .
The Church contains many features and religious artefacts that are very lovely.
While we were there it became a place of shelter for us for a while as the heavens opened and it poured rain, gave us extra time to enjoy the place .
When in the delightful Sigtuna spend a little time here
