The church was named after the patron saint of seafarers, St Nicholas. The oldest part is from the 1300'. The church is a red-brick building, and in the beautiful church rooms you find magnificent chalk paintings and a crucifix from the 1500´s.
You can also study a model, showing what the church and the monastery once looked like.
Close to the church are a couple of runestones, said to be from the 700-800th centuries; i.e. from the Vikings. As they are so old, the text on them is rather difficult to interpret. The one called the "Stentoften" has an inscription containing a curse to the effect that anyone who touches the stone will be struck by bad luck.
