Saro Church outside Gothenburg, is a very a small wooden church built in 1922. The wealthy residents of Saro wanted a church nearer to where they lived and built thee church from private funds. The architect, Allan Berglund was a local resident of Saro.
It is built in a national romantic and neoclassical style with a myriad of almost medieval ornaments (the painter is Brocke Blückert) in earthy colors.
It is a small and wonderfully intimate church situated up on a rock with many granite steps leading up to it.
Many people from Gothenburg visit Saro to go for long walks along the rocky water front, but very few have ever seen the inside of this church. Picture credit for the image above.
