Kaarlela church was built in the 1460’s, the precise year being unknown. It is one of the seven medieval stone churches in Ostrobothnia.  At the end of the 18th century the building underwent great changes according to drawings authorized by King Gustav III and was given the present cruciform shape.  The work was supervised by the prominent vicar Anders Chydenius, one of the most outstanding representatives of the Finnish liberalistic era. His picture is beside the pulpit.

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. Gylich, who wanted to create a sunny and spacious church that reflected hope and forgiveness in the spirit of the gospel. 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.
