Funbo Church

Uppsala, Sweden

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.

The reason for being there was not so pleasant, but it could not have happened in a better church. Very nicely located, very nice inside

A gem among the countryside churches of Eastern Uppland. Built by the local farmers, which makes the building even more incredible. Surrounding it is a rustic little village and idyllic nature. If possible, take a trip to see this hidden treasure!

A very interesting place with a rune stone from the year 1000 and the family burial of the Tolstoy family.

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
