Approximate modern location: Scania, southern Sweden, inland from Simrishamn, not far from the village of Östra Tommarp.

Other Comments: Tommarp had a reputation as a very wealthy and renowned abbey.  Today it is reduced to a few ruins in an archaeological park across a small road from the cemetery of the town church.
