Santa María de Bareyo was originally founded in the ninth century, along with many similar institutions as part of the Asturian kingdom's repopulation efforts. The Romanesque structure was likely built in the late twelfth century. Though there have been numerous later additions, greatly changing the edifice's exterior appearance, the choir, transept, lantern tower, and baptismal font are original.References:
Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.
Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
