This yellow building is the present-day small (Catholic) monastery of Bridgettine nuns, including a guest house for visitors. Sisters of the Order of Saint Bridget returned here to open a rest home in 1935. In 1963, the Monastery of Pax Mariæ was established; and since 1991 raised to the status of an autonomous abbey.
Across the park from the ‘new’ monastery (bottom left on the map), we find the old abbey church, which nowadays (ever since the reformation in the 16th century) belongs to the Lutheran Church of Sweden. In front - or rather, at the back! – there are some excavated old ruins; and the buildings on each side of the church (one of them now housing a museum) were also part of the medeival double monastery, where around 60 nuns and 25 monks lived back then.
We’ll be going into the museum next; and then the church.
