A special place in Strzelno. A beautifully landscaped large square with two very old churches. Both objects must be seen. There is also a museum and a cafe next to the temples. There is a large free car park in front of the churches. In the church of St. The Trinity Church houses Romanesque columns. There are seven of them. Four located in the nave. Two of them are richly carved.

Lovely church. Presumably the restoration of the Romanesque style would make it even more attractive

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.
