Church of Santa María de Cambre

Cambre, Spain

Church of Santa María de Cambre, located in the center of the town and framed by a beautiful garden, has reached our days as a leading example of Galician Romanesque art and although the construction of its current facade and part of its sheds began in the 12th century, the history of the place dates back several centuries. Some people even say that it could have been built on a previous Roman building, but the truth is the first reference to the existence of a religious construction in the place dates back to 932.

Preciosa iglesia románica en entorno urbano, lo peor es que está al lado de la carretera.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
