Teisko church was completed in 1788, but it was inaugurated and taken into use in August 1787 while the construction work was still incomplete. This was necessary due to the poor condition of the previous church. The bell-tower was made ten years later by Åkerblom.

The basic form of the church is a cross with sloped inside angles. Of the many repairs performed on this wood-framed church, the overall look of the building has been most affected by the modification of the size and shape of its windows in 1842, as well as by the interior renovation work in 1906.

When Teisko joined the Tampere Federation of Evangelical Lutheran Parishes in 1972, the urban parishes were supplemented with a traditional rural parish. Located by Lake Kirkkojärvi and surrounded by a cemetery, the church forms a harmonious whole and an impressive monument to Finnish architecture and cultural scenery.

Kävin sukulaisen haudalla. Oli päässyt haudan edessä olevat kukat kasvaneet niin pitkiksi, ettei näkynyt koko hautaa. Kun raivattiin, niin näkyi teksti. Oikein mukava pikku kirkko ja hautausmaa. Tunnelmallinen.

Cháteau Comtal

The Château Comtal (Count’s Castle) is a medieval castle within the Cité of Carcassonne, the largest city in Europe with its city walls still intact. The Château Comtal has a strong claim to be called a 'Cathar Castle'. When the Catholic Crusader army arrived in 1209 they first attacked Raymond-Roger Trencavel's castrum at Bèziers and then moved on to his main stronghold at Carcassonne.

The castle with rectangular shape is separated from the city by a deep ditch and defended by two barbicans. There are six towers curtain walls.

The castle was restored in 1853 by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.
