Old church of Keuruu / Vieja iglesia de Keuruu / Vieille église de Keuruu

Old wooden church of Keuruu is very special. Its is built in 1756-1759. There have been earlier already two churches. Paintings inside are from decade 1780. Architect was Antti Hakola. This beautiful church was no more used since 1892 when new church was built in Keuruu. There is quite short trip to Petajavesi old church (already presented), so visit both, if You are driving here in Southern Finland.

  2. Hello Matti, je trouve beaucoup de charme à la photo 15, avec les deux portes ouvertes et le piano dans une lumière bleutée.
    Quelle beauté encore ces décors, et plus encore, à mon goût, la douceur du bois patiné par le temps.
    Bonne fin de journée.

  3. Good evening, Matti
    it is amazing that this old church has been preserved so well. The architecture inside and out like that. And even the wall and ceiling paintings. I think every church has its own charisma and leave the visitors on specific impressions and feelings. I never saw before, somewhere wooden churches that I could attend. The churches in our area, or that I saw on vacation in remote places, are too different from the churches, which I previously saw in your blog. Every church has left several impressions on me that I felt very comfortable. I would very much like to visit once a wooden church to give me an impression. Maybe someday I have the opportunity to do so. I am grateful that I was allowed to visit this page also. I wish you and Anja all the best for your health and daily ways. Your blog, I’ll continue to try to visit. Thank you for your nice comment on my web page.
    Dear greetings Christel

    • Guten morgen Christel.

      Thank You for Your comment. In many cases these old wooden churches are located in small villages. As You have noticed, I have made a clear distinction between churches by making categories like wooden churches, stone churches. Later there will be more categories like cathedrals and Orthodox churches. Those small villages are interesting to visit, because just there one can find the “real people” and history, not in big cities.

      We have a proverb something like this: “Church in the middle of village”. It describes very good how important churches were in the past. Nowadays situation has changed due to new houses on areas and sometimes many old churches are not no more located in the middle of villages and when finding them one must drive thru curvy old roads. What is best then, is that, it is just there one has to forget hustle and start enjoy life without any hurry.

      Gruß.

  4. The church is just beautiful! And I love interior! It’s amazing how well it is preserved. Was it reconstructed? or repainted? if yes they did amazing work!

    • Hello Nadezhda.

      It was nice to read that You liked this old wooden church. I searched info about restauration, but there is so scanty info abot it. In one document it was sayid that something was made in 1955.

      Regards.

  5. Hello, Matti –

    Thank you for your nice comments on my blog. I will be posting more photos in the next few months of the churches we saw last year in Venice, Florence and Rome and this year in Portugal and Spain.

    I enjoyed seeing your photos, especially some of those with ships hanging from the ceiling of the church. And I also liked that comment of yours regarding “village churches” as opposed to those in big cities.
