The medieval Brunnby church in northwestern Scania

The medieval Brunnby church is one of my favourite churches in Scania (Skåne). The oldest parts of the church are from the 12th century. After that the church has been enlarged in the 16th, 18th and 20th centuries. The murals were painted in about 1475.

The Brunnby church is also an ideal church for chamber music recitals.
