The proudness of Östergötlands län is the high number of churches, around 200.
The Linköping area was an important region in older times, the importance is showed by the huge Linköping Cathedral.
My favourite though from the small number I have seen so far is the beautiful Kaga church.
The church is opened in daytime, during summer.
I was lucky today (Sep 2004) to get into the church and up under the roof. The roof in the nave was lowered in the 15th(?) century, and above the vaults of todays there is a space left where you can enter and also see some old wall paintings from the 12-13th century. I have taken the pictures and will publish them when coming home. This vault paintings are very famous and the Kaga church mostly get high ranked in books about Östergötland.
