My second visit to the historical estate. The cuisine is worth travelling for (1 1/2 hours in my case). Cozy dining rooms offering nostalgic ambience. Excellent.

Very nice place, but if the owner is behind the counter, run away. Very slow, and rude in addition. No sense of service and respect.

Really nice castle my girlfriends sister took us to to have lunch. Nice personnel, nice atmosphere upstairs, with a fireplace, and great food, especially the Fika! I loved the chocolate cake (one of the best) and the lemon pie was great too. And my toast with cantharels was nice too (a bit hard to find the truffel, but didn’t miss it). The entrance is uphill, so maybe a bit hard for elderly people!

Such a classic setting and dogs are welcome. I absolutely loved it.

Weird vibes within the working environment there, something not right. Crazy prices and the coffee is from a machine where you press a button.... Super nice environment though especially in summer

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
