Det är en riktig pärla. En guidad visning med muséeföreningens ordföranden var kolossalt givande. Han berättade saker som var helt okända för oss trots att vi bott här länge. TACK!

Jättetrevligt museum med olika avdelningar - skola från förr, djur o natur, sjöfart, tåghistoria, golfhistoria i Falsterbo, äldre historia från platsen, gammal affär, gammal fotoatelje m gamla foton, arkitektritade hus i Falsterbo mm. Mycket väl värt ett besök! Vi var två föräldrar o en 14-åring.

Inne på museet berättas det om falsterbo halvöns historia. Inne på kiosken serveras det god glass och fika, personalen är väldigt effektiv och trevlig

Härligt museum men tyvärr hade kiosk-ägarna inte öppet. Man stänger visst så fort sommargästerna lämnar. Synd för många ville äta glass när det var 26 grader i augusti.

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.
