The pilgrim symbol

Lund Cathedral is the hub of the Pilgrim Way Skåne Blekinge. The design of the symbol of the Pilgirm Way is based o a cross carved into the northeastern corner of the crypt.

The cross is a so called ring cross or Jerusalem cross, probably dating from the 12th century. The cross is very simple – as if someone has laid two pieces of wood on top of eachother and plated them together with three osiers, the three circles around the centre of the cross.

You can buy the pilgrim pin in Lund Cathedral or at the pilgrim meeting point Liberiet in Lund. Price: 20 SEK.
