Bjärsjölagård’s castle has a long and exciting history. An early lord of the castle was the Danish king, Valdemar Atterdag, who conquered Skåne in 1360. The castle was stormed in the 16th century by dissatisfied peasants and part of the stones of the castle were used to build Svaneholm castle. The building of today, in rococo style, was completed in 1766.
Bjärsjölagård was developed into a successful estate with agriculture and the extraction of lime. Even today you can visit the two lime kilns Adam and Eve, located within walking distance of the castle. The limestone quarry, which is now water-filled, is scenic and also worth a visit.
