This medieval stonehouse, in the corner of Standgatan and Lybska Gränd in Visby, is famous for two reasons. It’s the oldest apartment house in Sweden, built in the 13th century, and for its original stepped gable. It was built to serve as both residence and packhouse for one of Visby’s merchants. In the 19th century a pharmacy occupied this house and when the pharmacy moved to a new building in 1897 it got its nickname the old pharmacy. On the nice sign above the main entrance you can read, Wisby Apotek (Wisby Pharmacy). I believe this beautiful house is a perfect subject for HDR-photography and the dull weather also adds to the atmosphere in the picture.
