In the flat cultivated landscape, Vittinge church is clearly visible on a slight elevation. The whitewashed church was built around the year 1300, but does not really look like most other Uppland medieval churches because a large cross arm was built in the north in the middle of the 18th century. With an increasing population, it had become crowded in the church, but the extension, which is still called the New Church, accommodated many more seated.
In the late 15th century, Albertus Pictor filled the arches and walls of the church with paintings. In the history-romanticizing of the 1890s, the pictures were restored and painted very harshly to make them look more "real". Therefore, the images you see today do not have much of Albertus' original artistic qualities, but they give an idea of the splendor of color and richness of motifs that met medieval man when he entered the church.
