Ängelholms kyrka vid Järnvägsgatan har anor från 1700-talet, men ett antal om- och tillbyggnader har gjorts sedan dess, den största 1868. Interiören är ljus och luftig. Altartavlan i tre delar är från 1941, och orgeln så sen som år 2000. Kyrkan hålls i fint skick såväl in- som utvändigt.

Monet's Garden

Claude Monet lived for forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, in Giverny. With a passion for gardening as well as for colours, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art. Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionnism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.

In 1890 Monet had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lilies, the wisterias and the azaleas.

Today the Monet's Garden is open to the public.
