Rödkallen

EU - European Region Development Fund

Far out to sea, on the outer lilmits of the archipelago, lies Rödkallen, the last outpost facing Finland.
The island is the site of an old pilot station and a fishing harbour.In 1872, a Heidenstam-type lighthouse was built. The 21,4-metre tall lighthouse was designed by engineer Gustav von Heidenstam. In 1972, the lighthouse was taken out of service after exactly 100 years of use and is today classed a historical monument. The Heidenstam lighthouse on Rödkallen is one of the few remaining of its type in Sweden.
On Rödkallen there is also a beautiful chapel and a big labyrinth
