Hagby Church is one of Sweden’s few preserved round churches, and is considered by many to be the best preserved one in the country.

The predecessor of Hagby stone church was the wooded Saint Sigfrid chapel, which was located about two kilometres south of the present church structure. The construction of this stone church began in the late 12th century. The structure was meant to serve both as a sanctuary and a fortified building. As a result, the upper part of the walls has openings for shooting and spear throwing.

The most recent renovation has attempted to emphasise the old nature of the building, so that it is now perhaps the best example of round church architecture, which otherwise is generally mostly found on the island of Bornholm.
