The present Lidingö Church was completed in 1623 to the site of earlier wooden chapel. It was built due the initiative of Baner Svante Gustafsson (1584-1628) and his wife Ebba Griffin (1583-1666). The church was originally smaller and enlarged in 1756. The new sacristy was added in 1867. The font and the Gustavian style pulpit date from the 1770s. The Rococo style altarpiece was donated to the church in 1756.References:
La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.
In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
