Diagonally across the park from its bell tower, the adorable wooden Lappee Church was built in 1794 to an unusual ‘double cruciform’ floor plan, the only one of its kind in Finland. South of the church stretches the graveyard, with an evocative war memorial , which features poignant cubist and modernist sculptures commemorating Finns who died in the Winter and Continuation Wars.
