The church village of Gammelstad and Hägnan

The largest and best preserved church village in Sweden. This unique cultural environment with its medieval church and 408 church cottages was added to Unesco’s world heritage list in 1996. Visitors to the church who have travelled from afar have been staying overnight in the cottages ever since the 16th century. Nederluleå church is richly decorated with, among other things, one of the finest altar screens in the country, dating from the 1520's. Open for visits all year round. Guided tours in the summer. Don’t miss Hägnan – a living historical environment dating back to the 14th century. Visitor Centre:
