Sorunda Church is one of the largest in Södermanland. The oldest parts of the stone-built church date from the late 12th century. The church was extended and altered several times up to the 16th century.

The church was used as the burial place for members of the Bååth and Fleming families of the manors of Fållnäs and Fituna, and this accounts for the rich decoration of the interior of the church. The Bååth family chapel is the oldest of its kind in Sweden.

The paintings in the chapel date from 1549 and are therefore the oldest in the church. The Fleming family chapel is dominated by an impressive commemorative tablet in black and white marble over the grave of Councillor of State Erik Fleming (died 1679).

The church also contains a Madonna cabinet from the Lübeck workshop of Herman Rode, probably dating from the 1480s. There are three portals in the churchyard wall: the Fållnäs portal of 1671, the Fituna portal of 1674 and the Vicarage portal of 1684.
