Beautiful musical evening in a magnificent setting! It swings! An excellent Italian clarinetist capable of rising very high in the treble without tearing out the ears, 2 marvelous guitarists, 1 original Italian accordionist and a tireless bass cellist ..... an unforgettable atmosphere!

Beautiful exterior but modernized interior housing some works of art. Not for lovers of old stones. I salute all the same the municipality for the effort of rehabilitation in cultural place.

We were not able to visit the castle because it was closed on Mondays, but on the other hand we discussed with the secretary of the town hall who explained to us what there was to visit: it is to be seen. Very well received at the town hall which is right next to the castle

Very nice renovation. Congratulations to the "Friends of the castle". ?? It is a magnificent setting for the exhibitions presented there. Too bad it's a bit remote, but it's worth the trip.

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.
