Slagsta

Slagsta Rock Carving is an ancient but unique monument for Botkyrka. The people who lived during the Bronze Age honoured their gods and probably had their settlement in Hallunda which is near Slagsta. The Rock carving contains 17 ships, three animals, one human figure and one footprint. The exact meanings of the carvings have been lost in time but that they were important is clear. In the middle of the 17th century Slagsta became a Manor. The buildings that stand there today are not of this period. The main building was built about 1850’s but the wings are older. They were erected in the end of the 18th century. The main building was built in the Empire style. The preferred colour was often white or grey, not the yellow that dominated during the 18th century. Slagsta, too during this time had its importance due to its brickworks. In the end of the 19th century it became one of the most productive brickwork in the wide areas of Stockholm. By the shore you can still see remains of it beside the Slagsta bath we know of today.
