CONF 201 VIII.C

Inscription: The Church Village of Gammelstad, Lulea (Sweden)

The Church Village of Gammelstad, Lulea

762

Sweden

C(ii) (iv) (v)

The Committee decided to inscribe the nominated property on the basis of cultural criteria (ii), (iv) and (v), considering that the site is of outstanding universal value as it is a remarkable example of the traditional church town of northern Scandinavia, and admirably illustrates the adaptation of conventional urban design to the special geographical and climatic conditions of a hostile natural environment.
