Package Itinerary

Turku certainly has no shortage of national heritage landscapes, one of them being the view from the Aura to Kakolanmäki Hill, which was formerly the home of prisoners. Kakolanmäki is one of seven hills in Turku. Until 2007, the hill was home to the Turku Provincial Prison. After the prisoners were moved to Saramäki Prison, a discussion on what would be done with the magnificent Kakolanmäki Hill was begun. There are plans to convert the old prison area into residential and business areas. What will be done with the protected prison buildings is still open to debate. The National Board of Antiquities has named Kakolanmäki Hill one of Finland's most important Built Heritage sites. Completed in 1853, the prison building was built using granite taken from Kakolanmäki Hill itself.
