Translated the name of this place, Trolle Träsk, is The Troll Swamp. A man named Porse Geet owned it in the 1300th century. It was built in a swamp to be safe from war. The stone walls are one meter thick.

To get there you have to walk 500 m in the forest. Last 200 m you walk on a narrow boardwalk in the swamp. The lake is Djulö lake where I used to paddle a lot.
