"Torpa Stenhus (Stone House)" Ulricehamn Things to Do Tip by Watsoncomper

Ulricehamn Things to Do: 7 reviews and 12 photos

  Torpa Stenhus from the road entering the castle
by Watsoncomper

We visited this famous medieval castle which is southeast of Borås.

When we visited they were restoring the great hall walls. This was being done by painstakingly removing the topcoat of white paint and slowly exposing wonderful animal paintings underneath. The paintings were in blue outline.

Once complete the restoration will represent a unique glimpse of the past greatness of the hall.

I could imagine great feasts taking place in the hall in olden days with this fantastic array of native animals peering down from the walls

(Thank you Sjalen for reminding me about Torpa Stenhus)

Directions: South east of Boras taking the road 27 then follow the signs for Torpa Stenhus
