Värmdö Church from the 14th century was originally dedicated to St. Olaf. The parish was first mentioned in 1314 and the church in 1323. The construction was probably supported and donated by Fleming family. The church has been enlarged several times and called also as 'cathedral of archipelago'. The belfry was completed in 1809 and is third one on the site.
The crucifix dates from the 14th century and the magnificent altarpiece was made in Germany in 1480. There are also other wooden sculptures from the early 1500s. The richly decorated pulpit was carved in 1658 and donated by Göran Fleming.References:
The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village. Settlement here began sometime between 500 and 200 BC. At the centre of the settlement is a stone tower or broch, which once probably reached a height of around 10 metres. Its interior is divided into sections by upright slabs. The tower features two skins of drystone walls, with stone-floored galleries in between. These are accessed by steps. Stone ledges suggest that there was once an upper storey with a timber floor. The roof would have been thatched, surrounded by a wall walk linked by stairs to the ground floor. The broch features two hearths and a subterranean stone cistern with steps leading down into it. It is thought to have some religious significance, relating to an Iron Age cult of the underground.
The remains of the central tower are up to 3.6 metres high, and the stone walls are up to 4.1 metres thick.
