Further up the Aura River, one reaches the Turku Cathedral (Tuomiokirkko). It was originally built of wood in the late 1200s, and augmented with stone during the period 1500-1700. The cathedral is in the center of historic Turku. Just to the right (out of sight) was located the chemistry laboratory where Gadolin discovered yttrium. The view is eastward.
