Båken

Båken (the Beacon), built 1764-1768, is the most famous part of Arholma’s silhouette. It is reputed to be built of stone from the ruins of Lidö Palace, which was burned down during the rampages of the Russian army. Båken is home to art exhibitions and sales of handcrafts during the summer months.
