Everöd Church (Swedish: Everöds kyrka) is a medieval Lutheran church in Everöd in the province of Scania, Sweden. It belongs to the parish of Degeberga-Everöds in the Diocese of Lund. [1]

History and architecture[edit]

The church was built at the end of the 12th century in a Romanesque style. The oldest parts are the tower, nave and choir with apse. During the late Middle Ages a buttress was added to support the tower. During the second and third quarters of the 15th century the interior of the church was also vaulted. In the process, a set of Romanesque murals were obstructed, so that half of the murals are visible above the vaulting.[2]

The church was expanded during the 1770s with an addition to its northern side. A new church porch and entrance was added to the western side of the tower in 1837. The church contains murals from three different periods: the first half of the 13th century, the 1770s and the late 19th century.[3]
