Finland’s first church with two towers was built in old Tyrvää, nowadays Sastamala, in 1855.  The main church of Sastamala was designed by the city architect of Turku, P. J.

When the church was completed in 1855, the parishioners stopped using the old St. Olaf’s Church, which was abandoned in the village of Kalliala.
