The Franciscan Monastery

Franciscan Monastery

This is the remains of a Franciscan monastery in Enköping. It was built in the 1250s and was demolished in 1600. Excavations were done in the 1930s and a monastic site was found. After that they covered the whole site. It is now marked with a wooden cross and stone blocks in different patterns.
