Churches

Several of Halland’s churches are fantastic historic buildings with ancient artefacts and are well worth a visit. In the 1100s, when Halland was still part of Denmark, around 2,000 stone churches were built over the course of a century. Many of the churches still in existence in Halland today have their origins in that period. The painted ceilings from the 1700s are a distinguishing feature of churches in Halland.
