Bike Touring Highlight
The medieval Jonstorps Kyrka is located in Jonstorp, on the north side of the peninsula Kullen, about 9 kilometers northeast of the capital Höganäs.The Jonstorps Kyrka was built in the 12th and 13th century in the Romanesque style of fieldstone and dedicated to the Norwegian national saint St. Olof. The church tower with the stepped gable was added later in the 15th century.The renaissance-style altarpiece depicting the Last Supper dates from 1594. The wooden pulpit, decorated with sculptures of the apostles, dates from the reign of the Danish King Christian IV.In the nave hangs a votive ship, a model of Brig Hiram. It was donated to the church by shipowner Nils Martin Thore after one of his ships was rescued from a heavy storm.The large crucifix above the altar dates from the 15th century and used to hang in the vaulted ceiling between nave and choir. The baptismal font carved from a single oak trunk, on the other hand, is still very young, dating back to 1948, in stark contrast to the 1618 brass baptismal font decorated with scenes from the Annunciation.guidebook-sweden.com/de/reisefuehrer/reiseziel/jonstorps-kyrka-mittelalterliche-kirche-in-jonstorp
