  • The beautiful medieval stone church of St. Michael, where Mikael Agricola was once baptized. The boy was given a name in honor of the patron saint of the church-archangel Michael. Later, Mikhail, the son of a wealthy peasant, showed such diligence in teaching that the teachers persuaded his father to send him to study at the Lutheran School in Vyborg. There Mikhail took the name "Agricola"-"Farmer", under which he entered history as the first Lutheran Bishop of Finland, educator and translator of the Bible in Finnish.

A copy of this monument is installed opposite the Church of St. Michael in Pernaya
