Below Ryssberget the Vesan lake was in the past. Today the lake is elaborated and transformed into fertile fields. In Gammalstorp, there is a church on what was once an island in Vesan. There was previously a Romanesque church erected in the 12th century. On the other side of the fields is the ancient village of Ysane with its beautiful medieval church, St. Gertrude. Experience the church's beautiful well-preserved lime paintings, signed "Vittskövelmästaren" Nils Håkansson.

All the senses love the Listerland. Fragrances, flavors, sounds and emotions. On the way to Listerlandet, the lungs are filled with country air of the best variety. First with a slight notion of barn and manure, then of asparagus smoke, sea and seaweed. You hear the MAIF audience's cheers, the seagulls 'screams, the fishing boats' soothing throbbing and a jazz band in the August night. Beaches and picturesque fishing villages are like a pearl band along the eight mile coastline of the peninsula. Here it is easy to feel good and good to live! The most beautiful route to get to Hällevik is down the steep hill Haveliden. The view of the sea and the quarry far down there is breathtaking. In Hällevik you can swim, enjoy the range of smokers' and restaurants, the genuine environment, football and jazz .The fishing museum and the Old Fish Day give an insight into how life was lived in the fishing village before.
