The beautiful church of Lummelundas was founded in the 13th century and consists of limestone in the typical Gothic style. The construction has since been expanded and the different architectural styles are particularly recognisable inside the church which is filled with history. The ornate murals date from the 13th and 15th centuries. In the vicinity of Lummelunda are also several graves from the Stone Age and grave fields from the Iron Age and a number of Sliprannor; these archaeological finds consist of deep cuts in rocks and stone blocks. Mostly, these ornate stones are found in groups, and on Gotland they occur in a uniquely high frequency; over 3,500 of these ornate stones lie on the island, usually with a symmetrical orientation from east to west. To this day, people are arguing about when exactly the stones were made and what purpose they served. Some say the Sliprannor is a by-product of metal grinding; others believe that the stones served astronomical purposes. What is beyond doubt is that the stones are an impressive testimony of a bygone era, pointing to the centuries-long, turbulent history of the island of Gotland.
From your holiday home in Sweden in Lummelunda you have many other destinations to choose from: drive along the coast a bit south and visit Visby, the largest city in Gotland, capital and cultural centre of the island. In Visby there is a wealth of historical treasures to discover, from medieval architecture to museums, where numerous archaeological finds from all over Gotland are exhibited. Visby also has a dynamic city life with bars, cafes, shops and restaurants where you can spend while away a few relaxing hours.
In the north of the island, about 40 minutes from Lummelunda, lies the Blue Lagoon, as it is called by the locals. This unique bathing lake is the result of a quarry where lime was mined for decades. When the quarry was shut down towards the end of the 20th century, the pit began to fill up with water, and because of the limestone, the water takes on a blue colour that is otherwise familiar from the Caribbean islands. This lake is a popular bathing spot, not only because of its beauty, but also because the water here is a bit warmer on cool days than on the Baltic Sea coast. We would highly recommend a visit during your stay in one of our holiday homes in Sweden.
