For a small attraction, the history of the ruins is well illustrated and interesting to read. The hill where the ruin is an easy climb. You can see the foundations and outline of the rooms but not much else. Apart from this, you can relax and picnic by the waters or walk around the hill. Drop by if you are close by but it's far and out of the way just to travel from Stockholm to see this. There is a small parking area close by and the walk to the attraction takes 5 minutes.

Loved the serenity and the tranquility that comes along with this place. Best time to visit is during Swedish summer on a bright sunny day.Just spread ur picnic blanket, utilize the designated grill spots, break the bread and spend time with ur loved ones alongside the channel...

The outpost ruins give no idea about the structure that existed, more enjoyable is the walk by and the view of Linasundet.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
