The Pålsjö castle in Helsingborg

The Pålsjö castle was built in the late 1670s. During the Helsingborg battle in the Great Northern War (1700-1721) Earl Magnus Stenbock had his headquarters in the castle. The current appearance originates from the restoration made by Danish architect Christian Abraham in 1873.
