Description
The first church was a wood church. In middle of 12 century the tower was added. The tower was also used for defense. 50 years later the wood chuch was replaced by a stone church with nave, choir and apses. In the beginning of 15th century the porch at the south side of the church was added. The vaults were painted by a workshop ,which is named after the church - the Fjälkinge workshop.
