Hanila Church

Hanila Church was built in the 1270s, but the west tower was not completed until 1859. The Baroque altar wall and pulpit of the Hanila church, which are presumably the work of Friedrich Weiss, date from 1709. The stained glass windows and the floor were restored by Illar Kannelmäe.

Muhu Church

The church of Muhu was built in the early Gothic style, probably in the 13th century. The present church owes much to a reconstruction in 1738 after it was destroyed during the Great Northern War. Given the church's few narrow windows and other architectural features, it is assumed that the church was built for defence purposes.
