Built: XIV-XVII

The church is dedicated to the Holdy Cross and was originally subordinated to Padise monastery, has a rare circular tower (XV century, half of the tower collapsed in the 17th century) and massive walls. Arches with rare paintings, low triumphal arch and many recesses create an archaic charm. Visitors can climb the steeple to see Estonia’s oldest church bell (XIV century) and the arches above the ceiling. There is a memorial to stillborn children near the eastern wall.
