Källa Old Church
Källa Old Church is located along the road to Källahamn. For some time, Källahamn was one of the most important harbours on North-East Öland. The area around the church is called Vi alvar, and has many Iron Age remains.
The medieval church in Källa is one of the best-preserved fortified churches in Sweden. It still has its original roof but the inner structure has not been preserved completely. The church building contains remains of a Romanesque church, probably built in the later part of the 12th century.
Källa Old Church and its surroundings constitute a very valuable cultural-historical environment. It is the most well-preserved example of the churches on Öland that have had both profane and ecclesiastical functions during the Middle Ages.
The church may be rented for special occasions such as weddings, christenings and concerts. For more information, please contact Jan-Åke Johansson at Borgholm Castle. Phone +46 (0)485 88072 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
