What would Lysekil be without its beautiful, red granite rock? We are incredibly lucky to be able to run our hotel operation within a stone’s throw of the Stångehuvud Nature Reserve, saved by Mrs Calla Curman from the devastation caused by quarrying. The area offers magnificent sunsets, smooth rocks, a salty sea breeze, and wonderful views across the ocean. Granite features everywhere in our little town – the majestic church is built from it, and so is the impressive building housing the local newspaper. In the lovely town park is a large granite relief named ‘Bohuslänsk krönika’, by the artist Ivana Machackova. It consists of six large granite rocks with a combined weight of 30 tonnes, and depicts the 4,000 year-history of Bohuslän, from the Bronze Age, through the Viking Era and Middle Ages, the Herring Era, the Stonecutting Period, and all the way to modern times.
