Voxtorp is one of the two interesting round churches in the Kalmar region. It was built at the beginning of the 13th century as the church of a large medieval farm.
When a church was built in this area, generally the most important man there built it on his property. According to a legend, Voxtorp Church was built by a rich woman named Lona, who built it so she would not need to go to the church a gentry in Halltorp built on his manor.
Like the other churches in the area, Voxtorp became a fortified church. During the 13th century, this area was a vulnerable part of the country, threatened by Vandal pirates from the sea, and Danes from Blekinge. The fact that Voxtorp, like the neighbouring church in Hagby, was a round church can be a result of the influence from the Danish island of Bornholm.
There are no objects left from the earliest period of this church. The present appearance of the church is a result of a major restoration after lightning hit the church in 1958.
