A very old church, beautiful and impressive. Located in the absolute city centre. Very often when I visit Malmoe I go in there and sit for a while, very peaceful. From the beginning it was a catholic church

Not many cathedrals have had their tower falling down not once but twice. Fantastic acoustic and interesting artefacts.

If you like old church architecture then you would get lost in this grand building. I only walked around on the outside as it was undergoing some renovations. However, it was fun just seeing the detailed architecture put into the old buildings of yesteryear.
