Roskilde Convent – Historical gem in the heart of Roskilde

The convent is situated on the site of a former Blackfriar monestary built in 1231 that was demolished during the Reformation in 1536 and replaced by a manor house in 1565 that later became the first noble home for unmarried women of rank in 1699. Guided tours let you explore its history, architecture, art and library, not to mention the beautifully preserved church and the grand hall ceiling decorated with 60 panels depicting stories from the Bible.
