“A medieval church with a rare 18th century organ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Nagu church is a beautiful medieval, gothic style stone church, the building of which dates back to the early 15th century. The church has been dedicated to St Olaf, a 10th century Norwegian king who became the most popular saint in the Nordic countries in the middle ages. Originally this was a Catholic church but since reformation it has been the church of the Evangelican-Lutheran congregation of Nagu.

Nagu church has the largest and the only restorated 18th century organ in Finland. Other things to pay attention to are the painting by the first professional Finnish artist, R. W. Ekman, in the small chapel on the west side of the church, the glass paintings of saints Olaf and Erik and the primitive paintings in the ceiling.

Nagu church is located in the centre of the Nagu village, right beside the Archipelago Ringroute and just about 400 meters from the Nagu guest harbour, so it is convenient to reach by car, bike, bus or boat. There is plenty of parking space beside the church.
