View on map

Võõpsu's village chapel, is located right next to Setomaa's northern gate -- the bridge over the Võhandu River -- in a medieval village cemetery. This is the Estonian part of Setomaa's largest wooden tsässon, which some believe originally served as a barn. It was remodeled into a tsässon a little before the middle of the 18th century and properly renovated in 2010. Of architectural interest is the large, open front hall, which partially covers the side walls.

The patron saint of Võõpsu tsässon is St. Nicholas (Seto: Püha Migul) and its name days are the spring and winter St. Nicholas days (migulapäiv).
