  2. How marvellous! Too many of our Gothic Revival churches have very dark, gloomy interiors, but this is bright and airy – and I absolutely adore those stained glass windows – fabulous use of colour – but then I am a fan!

    • Hello Anny.

      You are right when saying that this church is not dark. Those stained glass windows are telling Finland’s history and the vicinity of Mikkeli.

      Have a great day!

  5. Yes, beautiful. I am curious to see the chandeliers lighted. Also, I love the exterior snow shots. What is an organ stop?

    • Hi Lisa.

      Thank You. Well, Organ stop explained in Wikipedia. In Paris in the church of Saint Sulpice there are 102 organ stops. Must be awesome to listen. How I knew this. coincidence, because in today’s local newspaper it was told. Coincidence – yes!

      Have a wonderful day!

  10. The craftsmanship is truly overwhelming. I love how well you photographed the stained glass windows.
    Great to see the church in its larger context within the town: I like the juxtaposition of gothic and midcentury architectural styles

  18. ¡ que iglesia tan magnifica ! (pìenso que su español es mejor que su ìngles). me gusta todo, especialmente las ventanas (‘stained’) y los ladrillos rojos. Gracioso: dijo que es una puebla pequeña con 48-mil habitantes … la ciudad ‘grande’ mas cerca de mì casa tiene mismos!

      Muchas gracias. Pues no lo sé. Hay quarenta y quarto años cuando trabajé en islas Canarias durante cuatro meses y allí aprendi hablar español, pero nunca aprendi escribir. Pero la cosa es así que quero mejorar mi español y eso es possible para hacer blogs.
