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