St Margaret's Lutheran Church in Karuse

Visited May 21, 2012

The last church we visited on our Saaremaa trip was St. Margaret's Lutheran Church in Karuse. By that point, my wife was beginning to feel a bit trapped by the project!

The church was built in the 13th century and is one of the oldest in Läänemaa. Otto von Lutterberg, Master of the Livonian Order, was buried there in 1270 after being killed in battle.
