Torpa stenhus is beautifully situated by the lake Åsunden in Västergötland. With unique architecture and lovely interior the medieval castle is one of Sweden's best preserved castles from the 16th century.
Torpa Stenhus is privately owned and has been in the same family's posession since the end of the 15th century!
This is where the famous Swedish king Gustav Vasa in the 16th century first met the 16 year old Miss Stenbock, who became his third and last wife!
