The South and the Kingdom of Glass Sights

St. Maria Kyrka (St. Mary's Church)

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 11/07/2012

Fodor's Review

The church itself here was built shortly after 1220 as a basilica in the Romanesque style, though there have been later additions. The watchman's copper horn sounds from the church tower beginning at 9:15 pm and repeating every 15 minutes until 1 am. It's to proclaim that "all is well." The church lies behind Stortorget on Lilla Norregatan.
