Why locals love it

In Simoniemi, near the church, there is also a local history museum, which once served as the parish's granary. The artefacts tell the local history. The Magazine Museum is located near Simon Church, completed in 1846. Significant built cultural environment and nationally valuable landscape area. Simonkyläntie is a museum road.

Why you should visit it

The area has a historic church site and an ancient cemetery with several birches growing, a little further away from the birch forest peeks a large pine tree. Centuries ago, the Markkina has been a major religious center in Western Lapland. Nevertheless, people could sacrifice on the old seita in case faith in Christ would not be effective.

Special tip

Summer destination. A cross road between two religions the old paganism and Christianity.
