The Churches of Gotland

EKSTA

Since the rebuilding of the chancel and the nave in 1838 the church is no longer a fully valid medieval building; only the 13th century tower stayed untouched by the renovation. The chancel portal from about 1300 was moved to the nave. There are fragments of paintings by the Passion master school. Only one of 25 original stained glass window panes has been preserved in the chancel window; some are known to exist in museums and other collections.
