Ales stenar

Sweden's largest and best-preserved shipwreck is magnificently located above the village of Kåseberga on Österlen's south coast. Ale's stones are one of Skåne's most popular places to visit - a scenic and exciting place that attracts people all year round.
The shipwreck is dated to around the year 600 and consists of 59 large boulders, each weighing about five tons. The shipwreck is a total of approximately 67 meters long and 19 meters wide and is thus Sweden's largest.
