Rather enjoyed this charming little cathedral. It's very beautiful inside but not so ornate that you don't know where to look. Nice and peaceful to just sit and listen to the pipe organ too.
Beautiful and iconic
Beautiful old church.
It's free to go inside. There is a huge organ too!
Famous sighting, must go, if you are in Turku. Long history.
