The farm can only be visited by appointment. There is a path around the castle, very imposing. And the goats like it there too: D

It's a shame that we can't visit ?

Unfortunately, this time I cannot rate correctly A large number of white signs hang on the (wide open) main gate. Suggestion: a simple "entry prohibited for unauthorized persons" would be more understandable for everyone than a sign with a penalty of over 500 EUR for non-compliance with corona measures and a "only access for guided tours". Unfortunately, there is no information about when these will take place. So it is not necessarily immediately understandable that not even the site is allowed to be entered.

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.
