The Funbo Church is a medieval stone church, built in the late 12th century. It consists of a rectangular nave, a narrow choir and an apse. The sacristy and the porch were added in the 15th century. The porch was used as the main entrance until 1745, when the current entrance in the western wall was built. The bell tower was erected in 1675.

The church interior includes some notable items, such as a 13th century baptismal font and a 16th century polyptych, manufactured in northern Germany. The altar was inaugurated on 5 December 1301.

Var utanför kyrkan och tittade på vattnet i ån.där asparna brukar leka. Bara en strimma vatten .men grönt och fint.

Very old church, rebuilt several times. The wooden triptichon was carved around 1500. Beautiful naive paintings were painted over a while then restaurated. Although in the weapon house the original colors can be admired. As usual in Sweden the bell tower is farther away. The church is usually closed in order to prevent theft of religious art. Book a visit in advance, well worth the hassle. Best chance to visit the church is when they arrange concert with local performers.

Monet's Garden

Claude Monet lived for forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, in Giverny. With a passion for gardening as well as for colours, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art. Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionnism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.

In 1890 Monet had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lilies, the wisterias and the azaleas.

Today the Monet's Garden is open to the public.
