Kaarma one-nave church was established in the second half of 13th century and was later rebuilt to be a two-nave church. Church is decorated with ornamental and figural fragments of frescos in secco technique that are the same age as initial church.Near pulpit You can see polychromous wooden sculpture of St.Joseph that belongs to Northern-German school.Interesting to know:First time on Saaremaa the supporting pillars were used in Kaarma churchThe eastern wall of church's chorus is decorated with rare in Estonia triple windowThe prototype for pulpit of Kaarma church was a pulpit of Lubeck church
