The medieval church is painted with white chalk color and has outstanding paintings. The paintings are from the 13th century on the walls and the ceiling. The pictures depict the legend of the martyr St Stephan whose day is celebrated on December 26. A new church was built in 1794, so that the old building was used as a granary. However, today, the old church is considered one of the best preserved medieval churches of Sweden.
