Site with a grandiose landscape. Deserves further maintenance, I imagine that the gardener's budget must already be substantial. Thank you for allowing us access to this beautiful park.

A real pleasure to walk there regularly, a resident of Bécherel access is free, for those who have to pay € 7 know that in no case they are stolen. This monument has the merit of being preserved, the maintenance of the park is irreproachable

Beautiful park with many perspectives. Impressive view of the valley. A lung of greenery for very hot days.

Maintained. Multiple discrete places ... Too bad the trees can not tell everything they have witnessed! .. Retained its original aspects.

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.
