Sanctuary Rocks

Art museum and magnificent scenery

About midway between Tjen and Gudhjem are the shrine cliffs up to 20 meters high. For millennia, surfing has eroded the rocky coast and created deep gorges in the mountains. Back after this are the sharp cuts, jagged granite columns and steep rock walls with deep corridors and caves, the so-called "stoves". The deepest caves are called Wet Oven, Dry Oven and Big Pot, and you can follow them far into the mountain. This is especially true of Black Pot, where you can penetrate 60 meters. This cave is also home to the Bornholm cave otter cup.

The rocks are named after a holy spring that had its outlet at the foot of these rocks and which caused many people to come to this place to be cured of their diseases. Later, the rocks were given romantic names, e.g. The Light Rock, the Moonlight Clips, and the Love Bench.

& #8220; Fat Fat Fat! The art museum nearby is beautiful and exciting & #8230; but the climb on the rocks, the visit to the & #8220; black pot & #8221; .. the amazing fat cave beat both Olaf Høst and Drachmann & #8221;
