St. Nicholas' Church, Visby, Gotland, Sweden

Another of Visby’s many ruined medieval churches, St. Nicholas started out life as part of a Dominican monastery dating to around 1230.

Along with the majority of Visby’s churches – and a good deal of the rest of the City – it was destroyed by an army from Lübeck in Germany in 1525.

The ruin of St. Nicholas’ Church has a surviving rose window in the gable which is its most distinctive surviving feature.
