In this charming medieval town more than 300 wooden houses have survived. On the main square, visitors can admire the Romanesque Sankta Maria Kyrka basilica (13C); the Latin School (1500) with its gemelled windows; and the half-timbered Krookshuset (late 18C). Also worthy of note here are the frescoes of the Sankt Petrikyrkan monastery (13C); the stepped gable of the Birgittahuset in Stora Östergatan; and Scandinavia's oldest half-timbered house, Pilgrändsgård (c 1480), on the corner of Pilgränd.
