Ales stenar - the megaliths in Kåseberga
One of the most visited attractions in Sweden!
“Between the sea and heaven cants the coast
there Ale raised a giant ship of stones,
recumbent where the glare of light dispersed,
in the darkened stillness of the forms reconciles,
a saga obscured shrouded to the tones of the Baltic,
a memorial whose secret alone it conceals.”
So begins a translation of Anders Österling’s poem to Ales stenar, the megalithic ship that crowns Kåseberga ridge above the little fishing village of Kåseberga on the coast below.
