Ales stones are located on the hill above Kåseberga east of Ystad. It is one of Sweden's most mythical sights - is it a grave monument or an ancient astronomical calendar? The stones are placed so that the sun sets at the northwest corner in summer and rises at the opposite corner in winter.
The 59 stones form the shape of a ship and the entire ship set is 67 meters long and 19 meters wide. The stones were probably erected sometime around 500–1,000 AD. during the Iron Age.
