Geocache Description:

En övergiven träkyrka på en liten ö
A deserted wooden church on a small island

Makarna Marie och Rudolf Klinckowström som bodde på Stavsunds slott ca 1863-1902 lät uppföra detta kapell på Mariaön, där de gemensamt skulle vila.
Marie, som konverterat till katolska kyrkan 1877 lät dock, i hemlighet, inviga kapellet katolskt.
När maken fick reda på detta skaffade han sig istället en gravplats vid Ekerö kyrka.
Marie är dock begravd på Mariaön.
Kapellet är nu öde, men varje år hålls där, om möjligt en requiemmässa på hennes dödsdag den 6 oktober.

Ön kan bara nås med egen båt!

Marie and Rudolf Klinckowström who lived at the castle of Stavsund 1863-1902 built this chapel on the island of Maria, where the were supposed to have their common final rest.
Marie, who converted to the catholic church in 1877, secretly, inaugurated the chapel in a catholic way.
When her husband discovered this, he got himself a grave at the church of Ekerö instead.
But Marie's grave is located on this island.
The chapel is now deserted, but still, a requiem is when possible being held here at Marias day of death, the 6th of october.

The island is only reachable by boat!

Lycka till / Good Luck!
