Perttel Church is a small stone church with a bell tower and a cemetery. The church and cemetery are surrounded by a stone wall. The church hall has bright, beautiful ceiling lighting with chandeliers, some donated. The organ loft has an organ and space for a church choir. The benches are traditional wooden benches. The crowd can accommodate about 350 people to sit on the benches. The altar is also in the middle of a light stone wall. An altarpiece depicting the history of a large religion in the background. The atmosphere in the empty church is a hobby as soon as you enter. Church employees do their work through joy with devotion. Parishioners of all ages visit the church, services, and concerts. People also come from outside the congregation. Everyone is welcome.

There are not many evaluations of church spending in this column. The Ukrainian-themed fair was nicely combined with the world of choice in fresh art and the atmosphere was passionate. Not forgetting the message

A small and sweet stone church.

A fine stone church at least from the outside. The church is located in the middle of a classic Finnish rural landscape.

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.
