The Churches of Gotland

HANGVAR

The church reminds one of the neighbour church of Hall and was built in the mid thirteenth century or a little later. For a long time the building has not undergone any restoration and therefore nothing is known about mural paintings. The mussel formed font is contemporary with the church. The pulpit is dated 1633, but the baldachin and the stairs are about 50 years later. The altarpiece is from 1684.
