Ancient Romanesque church in a small Bergamo village

Quite small, but very pretty church. Perfect for ceremonies (including weddings), thanks to its proximity to the Castle of Marne. There is a beautiful pipe organ, while the back of the apse houses a very old original part, dating back to the year 1000 (and not retouched in later times, like the rest of the building). Possibility of parking near / in front of the church.

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.
