Church of St. Lawrence

The Church of St. Lawrence is a medieval stone church built in the middle of the 15th century and dedicated to St. Lawrence of Rome. The present stone church was built between 1450 and 1460, and there are obvious similarities with other medieval stone churches in Ostuusimaa, suggesting that the church was built by the so-called "Master of Pernå", the same builder who was responsible for the churches in Pernå, Porvoo, Sipoo, Pyhtää and Vehkalahti. The church was severely damaged by a fire in 1893 and was subsequently restored on the basis of the old foundations.
