So steeped in the very interesting history of saint Birgitta. A must but get a guide. We walked around ourselves and it felt as it there was a lot of information we missed. The place is huge for a little country town.

Nice historic site with a lot of graves litterly under your feet! Odd-shaped church, wider that long.
