Närpes church

Närpes church is one of the medieval churches in Ostrobothnia and its oldest part was built in 1435. Up until the 1770's it was extended several times.

The altarpiece was painted by Swedish church painter Pehr Hörberg in 1803. The most unique item is the crucifix dating back to the 15th century. The pulpit is from the 1730's and six tombstones from the 17th century have been preserved inside the church.

The church stables, the clergy house and the rest of the buildings make this area unique and historically significant.

In summer the church is open to visitors during office hours.
