Seven churches’ tour – introduction

In July 2018 we made a bus tour of seven churches. We noticed this awesome tour in a local newspaper and loved the idea immediately. The tour lasted all day and it included one coffee with snacks and one meal. One coffee meal we paid ourselves. Tour passed on the southwestern area where I have visited seldom. Our group was big consisting of 50 enthusiasts. On the tour we had two guides. The one, real gentleman, who guided us back and forth to the area. The other was local guide, real Lady, which we picked at the destination. This Lady was specialized in the area and guided us in the churches. She was a real “databank” sharing exact information about churches, their history and even some legends. This was necessary, because churches were old. Six churches, of which one was former monastery church, were stone churches and one wooden church.

Here are churches which we visited: church of Raisio, church of Masku, church of Nousiainen, church of Lemu, church of Askainen, church of Merimasku and church of Naantali.

Former convent in Naantali

This church situates in Naantali, which is only 14 km from Turku. It is a small town having less than 19500 inhabitants. Naantali is known for its Moominworld. Those who do not visit Moominworld can take a walking tour in the old town of Naantali, admire its wooden houses and enjoy sea views by sitting in some of its restaurants. It is also possible to visit the garden of the President of the Republic’s summer residence on your own initiative or participate in a guided tour.

Originally the church of Naantali was the Catholic Bridgettine Convent, but nowadays it is a Lutheran Church. It dominates the general view of Naantali, because it stands on a hill. Bridget of Sweden (1303 – 23 July 1373) established the convent in Naantali in 1438. My visit to Naantali was not the first. I added some photos of my previous visits and mixed them together. The fifth photo from the beginning shows the model of convent how cleverly the area was shared with the nuns and monks. It is said that there were nuns up to 60 and monks 15. Abbess was the leader of whole convent. Convent also served as a center of the ability to write and education for women. In addition to these it offered an old people’s home. Convent also was famous its medical and healing skills.
The altarpiece is from the end of the 15th century. The beautifully decorated pulpit dates back to 1622. Crucifix is from the 15th century. There are also consecration crosses on walls, a pietà from 1460-1480, other small sculptures and one interesting is Crist’s head with crown of thorns from the end of the 15th century. My photos end showing the monument of St. Birgitta from the 1993 in front of the church. This post ends my Tour of the seven churches.

Church of Naantali belongs to the road churches, which means that they are open for visitors in summer time. Inside there is always a guide to serve You. The distance from Helsinki to Turku is 162 km / 101 mi and by rail it takes about two and half hours. From Turku to Naantali takes about half an hour by bus. After photos, I give some links to those to who want more detailed information.

Gira por las siete iglesias – introducción

En julio de 2018 hicimos un recorrido en autobús de siete iglesias. Notamos esta increíble gira en un periódico local y nos encantó la idea de inmediato. La excursión duró todo el día e incluía un café con aperitivos y una comida. Una comida de café que pagamos nosotros mismos. El recorrido pasó por el área del sudoeste donde he visitado pocas veces. Nuestro grupo era grande y constaba de 50 entusiastas. En el recorrido teníamos dos guías. El verdadero caballero que nos guió de ida y vuelta al área. La otra era una guía local, señora amable y atenta, que recogimos en el destino. Esta señora estaba especializada en el área y nos guió en las iglesias. Ella era un verdadera “banco de datos” que compartía información exacta sobre las iglesias, su historia e incluso algunas leyendas. Esto era necesario, porque las iglesias eran viejas. Seis iglesias, una de las cuales era la antigua iglesia del monasterio, eran iglesias de piedra y una de madera.

Aquí hay iglesias que visitamos: la iglesia de Raisio, la iglesia de Masku, la iglesia de Nousiainen, la iglesia de Lemu, la iglesia de Askainen, la iglesia de Merimasku y la iglesia de Naantali.

Antiguo convento en Naantali

Esta iglesia se encuentra en Naantali, se encuentra a 14 km de Turku solamente. Es un pueblo pequeño que tiene menos de 19500 habitantes. Naantali es conocido por su Moominworld. Aquellos que no visitan Moominworld pueden hacer un paseo por el la ciudad vieja de Naantali, admirar sus casas de madera y disfrutar de vistas al mar al sentarse en algunos de sus restaurantes o cafés. También es posible visitar el jardín de la residencia de verano del Presidente de la República por iniciativa propia o participar en una visita guiada.

Originalmente, la iglesia de Naantali era el convento católico de Bridgettine, pero hoy en día es una iglesia luterana. Domina la visión general de Naantali, porque se encuentra en una colina. Bridget de Suecia (1303 – 23 de julio de 1373) estableció el convento en Naantali en 1438. Mi visita a Naantali no fue la primera. Agregué algunas fotos de mis visitas anteriores y las mezclé. La quinta foto desde el principio muestra el modelo de convento por cuan inteligentemente fue compartidoel área por las monjas y monjes. Se dice que había monjas hasta 60 y monjes 15. La abadesa era la líder de todo el convento. Convent también sirvió como un centro de la capacidad de escribir y la educación para las mujeres. Además de estos ofrecía un residencia de ancianos. El convento también fue famoso por sus prácticas de curanderas e médicos.

El retablo es de finales del siglo XV. El púlpito bellamente decorado data de 1622. El crucifijo es del siglo XV. También hay cruces de consagración en las paredes, un pietà de 1460-1480, otras pequeñas esculturas y una interesante es la cabeza de Cristo con corona de espinas de finales del siglo XV. Mis fotos terminan mostrando el monumento de Santa Birgitta de 1993 delante de la iglesia. Este post termina mi recorrido por las siete iglesias.

La iglesia de Naantali pertenece a las iglesias de camino, lo que significa que están abiertas para los visitantes en verano. En el interior siempre hay una guía para servirte. La distancia desde Helsinki a Turku es de 162 km / 101 millas y en tren demora aproximadamente dos horas y media. De Turku a Naantali toma media hora en autobús. Después de las fotos, doy algunos enlaces a quienes desean información más detallada.

Tour des sept églises – introduction

En juillet 2018, nous avons fait une tournée en bus de sept églises. Nous avons remarqué cette superbe tournée dans un journal local et nous avons immédiatement adoré l’idée. La visite a duré toute la journée et comprenait un café avec des collations et un repas. Un pauses-café avec une tasse café et une brioche nous avons payé nous-mêmes. La tournée s’est déroulée dans la région du sud-ouest où je me suis rendu visite rarement. Notre groupe était composé de 50 passionnés. Pendant la tournée, nous avons eu deux guides. Le vrai gentilhomme qui nous a guidés aller-retour dans la région. L’autre était le guide local, une vraie Dame, que nous avons pris à destination. Cette charmante dame était spécialisée dans la région et nous a guidés dans les églises. Elle était une véritable “banque de données” partageant des informations exactes sur les églises, leur histoire et même nous racontant de certaines légendes. C’était nécessaire parce que les églises étaient anciennes. Six églises, dont l’une était l’ancienne église du monastère, les autres étaient des églises en pierre et une église en bois.

Voici les églises que nous avons visitées: l’église de Raisio, l’église de Masku, l’église de Nousiainen, l’église de Lemu, l’église d’Askainen, l’église de Merimasku et l’église de Naantali.

Ancien convent à Naantali

Cette église est située à Naantali, à seulement 14 km de Turku. C’est une petite ville de moins de 19500 habitants. Naantali est connue pour son monde des Moumines. Ceux qui ne visitent pas le monde des Moumines, peuvent faire une excursion à pied dans la vieille ville de Naantali, admirer ses maisons en bois et admirer la vue sur la mer assis dans certains de ses restaurants et cafés. Il est également possible de visiter le jardin de la résidence d’été du Président de la République de votre propre initiative ou de participer à une visite guidée.

À l’origine, l’église de Naantali était le couvent catholique Bridgettine, mais aujourd’hui c’est une église luthérienne. Elle domine la vue générale de Naantali, car elle se dresse sur une colline. Sainte Brigitte de Suède(1303 – 23 juillet 1373) a fondé le couvent de Naantali en 1438. Ma visite à Naantali n’était pas la première et donc j’ai ajouté quelques photos de mes visites précédentes et les ai mélangées. La cinquième photo du début montre le modèle de couvent avec quelle intelligence la région a été partagée avec les nonnes et les moines. Il est dit qu’il y avait jusqu’à 60 soeurs et 15 moines. Abbesse était la dirigeante de tout le couvent. Le couvent a également servi de centre capacité d’écrire et d’éducation pour les femmes. En plus de cela, il offrait une maison du troisième âge. Le couvent était également célèbre pour ses compétences médicales et de guérison.

Le retable date de la fin du 15ème siècle. La chaire joliment décorée date de 1622. Crucifix date du 15ème siècle. Il y a aussi des croix de consécration sur les murs, une pietà de 1460-1480, d’autres petites sculptures et une intéressante est la tête de Criste avec une couronne d’épines de la fin du XVe siècle. Mes photos se terminent par le monument de Sainte Brigitte de Suède datant de 1993 devant l’église. Cet article termine ma visite des sept églises.

L’église de Naantali appartient aux églises de la route, ce qui signifie qu’elles sont ouvertes aux visiteurs en été. À l’intérieur, il y a toujours un guide pour vous servir. La distance entre Helsinki et Turku est de 162 km / 101 mi et le rail prend environ deux heures et demie. De Turku à Naantali prend demi-heure en bus. Après les photos, je donne des liens vers ceux qui veulent des informations plus détaillées.

Digressão das sete igrejas – introdução

Em julho de 2018 fizemos uma excursão de ônibus de sete igrejas. Percebemos este passeio incrível em um jornal local e nous adorâmes a idéia imediatamente. O passeio durou o dia inteiro e incluiu um café com lanches e uma refeição. Também nós comemos uma refeição de café que nós tínhamos que pagar. A excursão passou à área do sudoeste onde eu visitei raramente. Nosso grupo era grande com 50 entusiastas. Nós temos dois guias. O único, um verdadeiro cavalheiro, que nos guiou de volta para a área. A outra foi a guia local, uma verdadeira dama, que nós apanhamos no destino. Esta senhora era especializada em área e nos guiou nas igrejas. Ela era um verdadeiro “banco de dados” compartilhando informações sobre igrejas, sua história e até algumas lendas. Isso foi necessário, porque as igrejas eram velhas. Seis igrejas, das quais uma igreja foi antiga mosteiro, outros eram igrejas de pedra e uma igreja de madeira.

Aqui são as igrejas que visitamos: igreja de Raisio, igreja de Masku, igreja de Nousiainen, igreja de Lemu, igreja de Askainen, igreja de Merimasku e igreja de Naantali.

Antigo convento em Naantali

Esta igreja fica em Naantali, a apenas 14 km de Turku. É uma cidade pequena que tem menos de 19500 habitantes. Naantali é conhecido por seu Moominworld. Aqueles que não visitam Moominworld podem dar um passeio pela antiga cidade de Naantali, admirar suas casas de madeira e apreciar a vista do mar enquanto se sentam em alguns de seus restaurantes ou cafés. Também é possível visitar no jardim da residência de verão do Presidente da República por sua própria iniciativa ou participar de uma visita guiada.

Originalmente, a igreja de Naantali foi o convento católico de Bridgettine, mas atualmente é uma igreja luterana. Ela domina a visão geral de Naantali, porque está em uma colina. Bridget da Suécia (1303 – 23 de julho de 1373) estabeleceu o convento em Naantali em 1438. A minha visita a Naantali não foi a primeira. Adicionei algumas fotos das minhas visitas anteriores e misturara-as. A quinta foto do começo mostra o modelo conventual de como a área foi compartilhada de maneira inteligente pelas freiras e monges. Diz-se que havia freiras de até 60 e 15 monges, a abadessa era a líder de todo o convento. Convento também serviu como um centro de escrita e educação para as mulheres. Além destes, oferecia um lar de idosos. O convento também ficou famoso por suas práticas de curandeiros e médicos.

O retábulo é do final do século XV. O púlpito lindamente decorado data de 1622. O crucifixo data do século XV. Há também cruzes de consagração nas paredes, uma pietà de 1460-1480, outras pequenas esculturas e uma interessante é a cabeça de Cristo com uma coroa de espinhos no final do século XV. As minhas fotos acabam mostrando o monumento de Santa Birgitta de 1993 em frente à igreja. Este post termina meu tour das sete igrejas.

A igreja de Naantali pertence ao caminho igrejas, o que significa que eles estão abertos para visitantes no verão. Lá dentro há sempre um guia para atendê-lo. A distância entre Helsinque e Turku é de 162 km / 101 milhas e leva cerca de duas horas e meia de trem. De Turku a Naantali, leva meia hora de ônibus. Depois das fotos, dou alguns ligações para quem deseja informações mais detalhadas.

    • Hello Takami.

      thank You leaving Your kind comment. This convent is in the town which is known for Moomin. I do not know if You have never heard about these lovely creatures. Naantali is a very beautiful seaside town.

      Naantali

      Have a wonderful day!

  2. I would like to visit Naantali someday Matti and take a look inside this beautiful church and also visit the Moomins. I loved my visit to the Moomin Museum in Tampere earlier in the year. Thank you for posting. Marion

    • Hello Marion.

      Thank You. Naantali is must-visit-place when in Finland. We have not visited in Moomin World since my granddaughter was a small girl – now she is adult. If You plan to visit Finland again some year, then visit in those many small seaside towns on the western and southern coast line. There is a list after this post:

      Naantali

      Have a good day

      Okay, now You saw how it is inside. I am glad that You have visited the town of Naantali. Did You visit at the same in Moomin World?

      Have a wonderful day!

  4. Hello. I have seen your post many times but everything is all wonderful churches.
    It snowed in Hokkaido, Japan for the first time this winter. Has Finland already snowed?

    • Hello wakasahs15th.

      Thank You loving my photos and leaving Your praising comment. Yes, we have had snow in the northern regions, but after a short period of warm weather nearly all melted. Here in Helsinki we do not have snow at this moment, but the weather is cold (about zero degrees) and windy. Snow situation can be changed suddenly – who knows the weather. 🙂

      Have wonderful day!

  5. Thank you for the virtual tour with so many impressive details! It is as if I had visited the former convent myself.

  7. A rather beautiful building as well as its position on the green hill, surrounded by many old trees (I discovered the impressive diameter of the tree trunk when Anja tried to clasp it!)
    A lot of interesting and sometimes colourful details inside and I particularly liked it to have a look at your photo taken of the model of this convent! A well–conceived dispostion of buildings, connections, garden areas and even protection.
    Thanks for showing another remarkable church/former convent in such detail!

    Best regards and have a nice week!

    • Hello Michèle.

      Naantali in which Church is small seaside town on our south-western coast line. I am glad that You loved the model of convent. It was quite dark in the corner where it was in a showcase and I thought that I have to test if I can take a picture of it. Many took photos using flashes, but we know that glasses give reflections, so I guess that they failed.

      Thank You again leaving Your praising comment.

      Have a nice week too,
      Matti

  11. “Convent also served as a center of the ability to write and education for women. In addition to these it offered an old people’s home. Convent also was famous its medical and healing skills.” Sounds like it was a good place, valuable to the community. –Curt

  12. What a magnificent place! Your photos of it are excellent and it must have been difficult to photograph the church because of its huge size!

    • Hello Terry.

      Some items were difficult to shoot photos. I own only one lens AF-S NIKKOR 28-300MM F/3.5-5.6G ED VR and in some special situations it causes me some trouble. In my next post, Alpine model railway exhibition, You can compare my photos which I took using my camera and my wife took photos using my phone. Interesting?

      Thank You commenting.

      Have a good day!

  14. Une église du haut Moyen- Age ! Elle est presque aussi vieille que la cathédrale d’Amiens , ville où je vis .
    Tu as fait un très beau reportage qui montre les efforts des maçons et artistes sculpteurs pour faire ce monument de foi . Cette église est aussi parfaitement entretenue.
    Amitiés

    • Bonjour Michel.

      Ça va? Oh-la-la, Basilique Cathédrale Notre-Dame d’Amiens. C’est magnifique et três Grande. Je n’ai pas trouvé la longueur cumulée des bancs, mais ça doit être énorme. En Finlande, nous avons la plus grande église en bois du monde. Mon page:

      La plus grande église en bois du monde

      Nous n’avons pas visité Amiens, mais Reims oui. Il y avait aussi belle cathédrale.

      Je vous souhaite une excellente journée.

      Amitiés,
      Matti

    • Hello Sahanhama.

      Thank You for Your praising words. I am glad that You followed my series of medieval churches. Snowfall – great, because in Finland, we do not have much, only few centimeter in Lapland in some places. They need there snow, because in the beginning of December starts high season of winter wonderland. It lasts until Christmas.

      良い 週末!

  25. When visiting convents I usually note how very serene and often desolate these places seem, but your post was an intriguing reminder that in their heyday they were hives of activity and entirely self-sustaining communities.
