Stone church with star ceiling and blood stone

The Kangasala grey granite church, completed in 1767, invites you to attend roadside church in the summer. The coffered ceiling decorated with stars was restored in the latest renovation. The outer wall of the church has a blood stone that looks like it is leaking a red substance. It is said that a young nobleman had fallen for a common woman who was sentenced as a witch. The woman proclaimed her innocence, and as proof, her execution stone would always keep bleeding. The drops of blood in the Kangasala coat of arms symbolise this story.
