Stoby kyrka

Originally an apse church from the 12th century.

The church has undergone considerable rebuilding work, first with the extension of the nave in the 1600s and later with the construction of the new church in 1836 and the stepped gable tower 18 years later.

The vaulted ceiling of the chancel is decorated with frescoes in the style of the so called "Everlöv School", with the main themes being the birth of Jesus and the four evangelists. The triumphal arch and vaulted apse bear traces of frescoes from the Romanesque era, presumably from the thirteenth century, while the walls of the chancel are decorated with remarkable inscriptions in the plaster which consists of tiny symbols and figures.
