Considered to be the oldest congregation in Gothenburg, Örgryte Gamla Kyrka is an ancient church complex comprising of three smaller churches, dating back to the 11th Century. The first church built on this site was a nine-meter stave church, which was replaced with a Roman stone church in the 13th Century. During the latter half of the 19th Century, the parish significantly increased and there was a need for another church- which was erected in the neo-Gothic style by Bishop Edvard Rodhe.
The Roco-style ceiling frescoes in bright colors with dynamic motifs further added to the beauty of the complex. It is now both a religious center as well as a popular tourist attraction, also organizing fairs, seminars, workshops and lectures on its premises for both children and adults.
