In the monastery town of Skänninge, about 10 km north of Mjölby, you will find several historical sights. These include the ruins of St. Ingrids' Monastery, which was built in the early 13th century. This was Sweden's first female Dominican monastery. A curious story about Skänninge is that the first elephant in Sweden was displayed right here, back in 1806. The ticket prices were so high that it started a riot among the locals, which was so big that the military was called in to help quell the tempers. This rebellion was reported all over the country under the headline "The Elephant Rebellion in Skänninge". In Skänninge you can also visit St. Ingrids Gille, Skänninges Egnshistorieforening with its rosary, herb garden and three beautiful historic buildings.
