Reigi did not become an independent parish until 1627. Baron O. R. L. von Ungern-Sternberg had its stone church - which is dedicated to Jesus - built in memory of his son Gustav, who had taken his own life. The greatest treasure of Reigi church is its art collection.
Did you know...? *The name 'Reigi' comes from Swedish and means 'smoke' or 'signal fire' *Pihla Tavern, known from Gustav Ernesaks’s opera 'Stormy Beach', was located across the street from the church *Inspired by the words of Runeberg, Pastor G. F. Rinne wrote a song of praise to Hiiumaa to a tune by Pacius
