The Church of St. Sigfrid

Sipoo, Finland

The Old Church in Sipoo was built in 1450-1454 by the same unknown architect who designed for example Porvoo, Pernaja and Pyhtää churches.

There are several wall paintings inside the church from the end of 15th century.

Allan Neil, you were right. The photo, now removed, was from the "new" church of Sipoo.

This is NOT the interior of St. Sigfrids in Sipoo, Finland

Very interesting place, medieval authentic ornaments on the walls and ceiling, ancient coats of arms with beautiful woodworking. Very friendly guide with a lot of knowledge about the place, and the ability to clearly explain all the interesting details. The church is worth visiting 100%.

Quaint and very old Lutheran Church. I believe one of the first. The inside was amazing to see with the original stone floors and historic murals.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
