Visited in Porvoo old church at ceremony. Place was full of people and feeling was warm. Church decoration is very nice and worthwhile for visit.

Nice sea church. A pleasant place to visit especially if the weather is not good. You will see some painted walls and even a replica of a boat. The venue is small but very typical.

A cathedral with a nice compound and a view of the river. There are guided tours available, and on the Saturday we visited the guided tour around noon was free. When in Old Town Porvoo, a must visit

Don't think that I would make a special trip just to see the Cathedral, but it is a stop on the walking tour of Porvoo. The interiors were very nice

We walked up there while visiting Porvoo. I hate to give it average, but we saw so many other breath taking cathedrals, its hard to rate it higher and disappoint people. If you are visiting Porvoo. you should see it as well.

There inside of the church is really beautiful but pay attention for the opening hours as during lunch hours it is closed.
