The Kattlunds farm (Kattlunds Gård) was established in the Middle Ages. There are still some original buildings remaining (like stable), the newest ones were built in the 19th century. The ruins of medieval defense tower are located close to the farm. Kattlunds is owned today by Gotland Museum and is open to the public in summer season. There is also a giftshop and café.

Good food, not managed very well. Should work on communication amongst employees and definitely not run out of of the main course on the daily buffé at 13.30 when it goes until 17.00

Historic Village of Olargues

Olargues is a good example of a French medieval town and rated as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It was occupied by the Romans, the Vandals and the Visigoths. At the end of the 11th century the Jaur valley came under the authority of the Château of the Viscount of Minerve. The following centuries saw a succession of wars and epidemics, and it was not until the 18th century that Olargues became re-established. This was due to the prosperity of local agriculture and artisanal industry.

The Pont du Diable, 'Devil's Bridge', is said to date back to 1202 and is reputed to be the scene of transactions between the people of Olargues and the devil. The old village is clustered around the belltower, which was formerly the main tower of the castle (Romanesque construction). The old shops have marble frontages and overhanging upper storeys. A museum of popular traditions and art is to be found in the stairs of the Commanderie.
