Culture and history

Pelarorden’s stronghold

Not a great deal is known about the cultural history of the Norrpada archipelago. Norrpada is perhaps best known today for the fact that the mythical fellowship known as the “Pelar Order” meets on Storskär (outside the nature reserve). The island is the venue for the Order’s July meeting, which takes place every three years. The Order has also raised a metal weather vane on Storskär’s 20-metre-high hilltop.
