Harju-Risti Church

Harju-Risti kirik

The Church of the Holy Cross in Harju-Risti is a medieval Gothic style building with a peculiar shaped tower. Construction started in the 13th century and was completed in the first half of the 15th century. The church is the eye-catcher in Harju-Risti, a village in Padise vald, some distance west of Tallinn.

The church was originally built with a round tower, however during the first half of 17th century half of the top of the tower collapsed. It was only partially reconstructed giving the tower its peculiar shape.
