For 150 years Kakola was Finland’s most notorious prison. Now in the centre of Turku little by little the area has evolved for its current residential and tourism use, but the old prison facilities are still preserved as a treasure of history.

The former prison organises guided tours for groups, during which visitors get to know the Finnish penal system, the formidable daily prison life and see the various prison cell systems. Tours can be booked for groups in English.

Kakolanmäki is one of Turku’s highest hills from which you can enjoy stunning vistas making the area a fascinating walking destination.
