Glömminge church was built in the middle of the 1100's with a sturdy defence tower built to defend the population in times of war. An authentic votive ship hangs in the church. It is a model of a war brig from the late 1800's with royal yards and studding sail spars with the name Souwenier. The model was given to Glömminge church by the tradesman Daniel Korsseman in Kalmar, who, some time around the year 1800, was travelling from Kalmar to Öland when, in a storm, the ship went aground in the Kalmar Strait. Korsseman survived and gave the model to the church in 1836.
