Stora Hästnäs

Stora Hästnäs is an estate on the island Gotland, not far from Visby, Sweden. It is known mainly for its well preserved medieval era stone house dating from the 1300s. It is the most well-preserved medieval residential building on Gotland outside Visby.

The medieval limestone building is four stories tall and decorated with crow-stepped gables. A three-window gallery adorns the southern façade, and above it a door designed to bring merchandise and supplies to the top, storage floor. Originally the presently visible building was only the middle section of a considerably larger building.
