As Swedish cathedrals go, this is low on the totem pole -- you might drop in for a 30-minute visit. Legend has it that this cathedral stands on the spot where St. Sigfrid (an 11th-c. missionary to Småland from York, England) erected a little wooden church. The cathedral has copper-clad towers and a bright interior, and its chimes are heard three times a day. Summer concerts are held in the cathedral Thursdays at 8pm.

Adjacent to the cathedral is Linnéparken (Linné Park), named for Carl von Linné (Carolus Linnaeus), the Swedish botanist who developed the scientific categories of plants. In the park, an arboretum displays 24 categories of perennials. There also are other flower gardens throughout and a playground for children. The cathedral is in the town center.
