XII century The ancient church of Saint Peter was built in the very heart of the medieval city not far from Saint Peter's Gate. Known as the Church of San Pedro and San Ildefonso, it was built on a Visigothic church. The Church of San Ildefonso was renovated in Romanesque style during the 12th century, preserving the doorway, the main chapel and a rose window.

Walking through the historic center before reaching the Cathedral, we visited this church full of a lot of history, apart from the fact that after the Cathedral it is the largest church. Built on a Visigoth church in the 12th century, later renovated and expanded in the 15th century. In the 16th century it was declared an Archpriest church. Inside, the remains of San Ildefonso and San Atilano rest on the High Altar. Declared a National Monument in 1974. The interior is worth seeing and photographing.

Kastelholma Castle

First record of Kastelholma (or Kastelholm) castle is from the year 1388 in the contract of Queen Margaret I of Denmark, where a large portion of the inheritance of Bo Jonsson Grip was given to the queen. The heyday of the castle was in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was administrated by Danish and Swedish kings and stewards of the realms. Kastelhoma was expanded and enhanced several times.

In the end of 16th century castle was owned by the previous queen Catherine Jagellon (Stenbock), an enemy of the King of Sweden Eric XIV. King Eric conquered Kastelholma in 1599 and all defending officers were taken to Turku and executed. The castle was damaged under the siege and it took 30 years to renovate it.

In 1634 Åland was joined with the County of Åbo and Björneborg and Kastelholma lost its administrative status.
