History of Gammelstad's church town
In Gammelstad's church town is Norrland's largest medieval stone church from 1492, a large and well-preserved church town with church cottages, residential buildings, parish magazines and much more. This is the place where Luleå was founded, and grew from a small church and trading place to a real city. The city was moved in the 17th century, and that was when people popularly began to call the place "Old Town". Among Gammelstad's more famous visitors is Carl Linnéus who came to Gammelstad at midsummer 1732, only 25 years old. He wrote: “If the summer here is shorter than any other place in the world, I also admit that he is more pleasant. Never in my days have I lived healthier than now. ”
The first overnight cottages were probably built in the 16th century after the conscription was introduced. The long distances, the merchants' need for warehouses and overnight stalls at the market place, the church stables, where the horses stood while the common people attended the service and last but not least the population's obligation to visit the church regularly increased the number of church cottages. The irregular placement of the cottages indicates that they were added gradually and when needed. From the beginning, people from the same village had their cottages next to each other and at the different entrances to the church. When all the roads were lined with cottages, the ground between the roads was also filled with buildings. Then the alleys and the "smogen" arose, ie the narrow steps between the church cottages.
