The Lakelands Sights

Pyhän Ristin Kirkko

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

Six kilometers (3½ mi) north of Hämeenlinna is Hattula, whose Church of the Holy Cross is the most famous of Finland's medieval churches. Its interior is a fresco gallery of biblical scenes whose vicious little devils and soulful saints are as vivid and devious as when they were first painted around 1510.
