Description
Hästveda is situated in northern Skåne not far from the border to Småland, which also was the medieval border between Denmark and Sweden. The church was constructed in the 12th century and in late 13th century painted with romanesque paintings in the apse. Later on in end of 15th century the whole church was painted by the Everlöv workshop. The paintings were whitewashed sometimes before 1800 and uncovered in 1940
