We visited this church while doing a city walk. It's a very rich decorated church. Most of the churches are closed, this one was opend. I did'nt had a camera, it was in the car because I did'nt realised it was open.

It was raining the morning we were in Ystad visiting the sites from the Wallander novels. We popped into the church to dry off and read our tourist info. Enjoyed the church, being dry and a moment of quiet.
