The new Alvsborg fortress

Interesting
Clinging to its island in the middle of the Göta, the fortress, built between 1653 et 1670, stood up to the joint attacks of the Danes and the Norsemen in 1719, and Göteborg was saved! It became a prison in the 19 C, but now elegant banquets are held under its arches, and marriages are blessed in the new chapel.
