Fröderyd Kyrka är en stor fin vit kyrkobyggnad med en trevlig och behaglig kyrkogård. Inramad av en underbar gammal stenmur. Baksidan vetter mot naturen och inger en viss känslan av stillhet. Kyrkan ligger mittemot Lina Sandell Gården i Fröderyd. Det finns parkering mittemot kyrkan och bredvid kyrkan busshållplats med busskur i glas. Till synes finns ingen handikappingång /ramp till kyrkan.

Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) is a large castle located in Nantes. It served as the centre of the historical province of Brittany until its separation in 1941. It was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, subsequently becoming the Breton residence of the French Monarchy. Today the castle houses the Nantes History Museum.

The restored edifice now includes the new Nantes History Museum, installed in 32 of the castle rooms. The museum presents more than 850 objects of collection with the aid of multimedia devices. The castle and the museum try to offer a modern vision of the heritage by presenting the past, the present and the future of the city. Night-time illuminations at the castle further reinforce the revival of the site. The 500-metre round walk on the fortified ramparts provides views not just of the castle buildings and courtyards but also of the town.
