  • The church is small but you can feel the atmosphere of the old days. Inside the church has some nice decoration. It is free of charge to enter it but of course you can donate or buy the stuffs there. ...  more »
  • Some of the old churches in southeastern of Finland seem pretty strange, as well as those of Porvoo. Top situated above the old town announces their special position as a large gabled House without recognizable Tower. Only after reaching the grounds of this clumsy-looking building can be seen also a significantly smaller Tower building offset in addition, that suggests the existence of a church. From afar we the not clear. The whole complex is already several centuries old is mainly at the base of the Tower visible, which is put together from a patchwork of different rocks, so bricks and rough granite blocks. It is thus evident that the complex, whose oldest Fragmente date from the early Middle Ages, numerous destructions and reconstructions had to accept, what makes it all the more interesting. The main building is clumsy, but with its also sides and modest decorations little exotic and therefore interesting. The Interior remained unfortunately closed to me, but that I was in a similar building in the nearby Pyhtää then examine and enjoy - see there.

  • So nice at sunset and clear sky!
  • Very beautiful church in Porvoo. One of the must visit places when you are in Porvoo.
  • Beautiful Church.
  • Even the church is easily one of the most beautiful I know but also the surroundings of old Porvoo and great views over Porvoonjoki and the whole town just makes it better.
  • Unique architectural style. Nice to see when you're in Poorvo. But it's quickly visited and not impressive.
