Historical monument at the foot of the Ciron at the Trave bridge

Very beautiful place overlooking the Ciron. When the sun is out, the shine of the stones shimmers around the wildlife. It lacks the historical documentation of the place, it is a pity. Explanatory panels would be welcome. Parking nearby. Possibility of getting to the edge of Ciron by stairs, holding hands with young children. Accessible to everyone.

For lovers of old stones, a peaceful place on the edge of the Ciron.

Magnificent romantic ruins. This place dear to Léo Drouyn has lost none of its beauty, and is located in a relatively peaceful setting with a pretty view.

Kastelholma Castle

First record of Kastelholma (or Kastelholm) castle is from the year 1388 in the contract of Queen Margaret I of Denmark, where a large portion of the inheritance of Bo Jonsson Grip was given to the queen. The heyday of the castle was in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was administrated by Danish and Swedish kings and stewards of the realms. Kastelhoma was expanded and enhanced several times.

In the end of 16th century castle was owned by the previous queen Catherine Jagellon (Stenbock), an enemy of the King of Sweden Eric XIV. King Eric conquered Kastelholma in 1599 and all defending officers were taken to Turku and executed. The castle was damaged under the siege and it took 30 years to renovate it.

In 1634 Åland was joined with the County of Åbo and Björneborg and Kastelholma lost its administrative status.
