There has been one or more earlier churches on the same site of current Lunda church. One evidence of this is a font, dating from the 1200s. The current church was built in the early 1400s. The pulpit is designed by C. W. Palmroth and donated to Lunda church in 1806.

Nice old church. Inside it the byzantine icon of the first Swedish female orthodox saint, Anna if Novgorod

A pretty little brick church with beautiful wall/ceiling paintings and curiosities inside. Surroundings are pretty, as well. Well-worth a visit for anyone with an interest in history, together with the ruins just nearby.

It is a beautiful church with remnants of it medieval predecessors. It has old murals and wooden sculptures dating to medieval times. Right in front of it, in the same park are the ruins of St. Olof's church. Definitely worth a visit.

Honestly not much other than, it's a church. I have definitely seen better ones but it's close to the ruins so step in and take a look. Be mindful and be respectful of the church and surrounding grounds.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
