If you want to know the Argaric culture, here is a good opportunity. Good site, quite advanced excavations and the explanation of the guides is very complete. You also have a well-conditioned interpretation center and ample parking.

Spännande att bli guidad runt i området och få höra om livet för så länge sedan

It was a very interesting excursion although we do not have much interest or knowledge of archeology. We were extremely lucky to get there without tickets and find a group, usually you can't get in without a reservation. It charges 5.60 eur per person, you can enter with the dog.

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.
