Klågerup Castle

Klågerup, Sweden

The history of Klågerup estate dates from the early 15th century, when it was owned by Peter Spoldener and his son. In the 18th century buildings were in bad shape and in 1737 Fredrik Trolle started an extensive restoration. The present main building got its appearance in 1858, when it was rebuilt to the French Renaissance style by architect Helgo Zettervall. Klågerup was a center of local peasant riots in 1811. The rebellion was defeated however in few days. Today there is a small doll museum in the wing of Klågerup castle. It is open by appointment only.

Peasants revolt. They don't riot. Typical bourgeois jargon. I finally saw the excellent musical 1811 by Rolf Hellmark and Lars Johansson and left flowers at the monument in June of 2011. We will always remember MÃ¥rten Bengtsson who made the supreme sacrifice.

Great place for a family outdoor trip! The castle is nice and has lovely gardens with fountains and paths to walk. In addition, around you can find animals enclosures, a children playground, picknick area, bunch of cafes and many more paths to walk and explore.

The last stop to get down if going by bus . The castle building is not opened for public I believe. However it is worth seeing the surroundings. Beautiful flora and calm fauna . Best for kids as they can take a curious trip around the forest surrounding the castle . Further , there is an adventure area near to the castle where kids can spend lot of time . Clean toilet , bbq space and calm place for family . A best weekend getaway

Monte d'Accoddi

Monte d"Accoddi is a Neolithic archaeological site in northern Sardinia, located in the territory of Sassari. The site consists of a massive raised stone platform thought to have been an altar. It was constructed by the Ozieri culture or earlier, with the oldest parts dated to around 4,000–3,650 BC.

The site was discovered in 1954 in a field owned by the Segni family. No chambers or entrances to the mound have been found, leading to the presumption it was an altar, a temple or a step pyramid. It may have also served an observational function, as its square plan is coordinated with the cardinal points of the compass.

The initial Ozieri structure was abandoned or destroyed around 3000 BC, with traces of fire found in the archeological evidence. Around 2800 BC the remains of the original structure were completely covered with a layered mixture of earth and stone, and large blocks of limestone were then applied to establish a second platform, truncated by a step pyramid (36 m × 29 m, about 10 m in height), accessible by means of a second ramp, 42 m long, built over the older one. This second temple resembles contemporary Mesopotamian ziggurats, and is attributed to the Abealzu-Filigosa culture.

Archeological excavations from the chalcolithic Abealzu-Filigosa layers indicate the Monte d"Accoddi was used for animal sacrifice, with the remains of sheep, cattle, and swine recovered in near equal proportions. It is among the earliest known sacrificial sites in Western Europe.

The site appears to have been abandoned again around 1800 BC, at the onset of the Nuragic age.

The monument was partially reconstructed during the 1980s. It is open to the public and accessible by the old route of SS131 highway, near the hamlet of Ottava. It is 14,9 km from Sassari and 45 km from Alghero. There is no public transportation to the site. The opening times vary throughout the year.
