Built: 14th–17th centuries
A church dedicated to the Holy Cross of Christ, formerly belonging to the monastery at Padise. The church has a rare round tower (15th c., half of the tower collapsed in the 17th century) and massive walls. A bulky pillar and a low triumphal arch add archaic charm to the church. It is possible to climb up the tower in order to admire the oldest church bell in Estonia (14th c.) and to take a look at the ceiling vaults.
