Geocache Description:

Tämä kätkö on ensimmäinen sarjassa kätköt Hämeen Härkätien varrella. KÄTKÖ EI OLE KIVIAIDASSA!
This is the first cache in series of caches beside the Ox Road of Häme. CACHE IS NON IN THES STONE WALL!



Keskiajalla Härkätie yhdisti valtakunnan kaksi tärkeää linnaa, Turun linnan ja Hämeen linnan. Sotilaiden ja hallintomiesten ohella tiellä kulkivat kirkonmiehet ja pyhiinvaeltajat, sillä Härkätie liitti toisiinsa Turun Tuomiokirkon, Rengon Pyhän Jaakon kirkon sekä Hämeen äitikirkon, Hattulan Pyhän Ristin.

Hattulan Pyhän Ristin kirkko, Hämeen vanhin kirkko, on rakennettu 1470-1490. Keskiajalla tämä kirkko on ollut suosittu pyhiinvaelluskohde. Kirkon erikoisuuksina ovat muun muassa kokoelma puuveistoksia, joista vanhin on 1300-luvun alkupuoliskolta, puinen kastemalja keskiajalta sekä maamme vanhin saarnastuoli vuodelta 1550.



In medieval times the Ox Road of Häme was connecting two significant castles, The Castle of Turku and The Castle of Häme. This road also connected two churches The Dome Church of Turku and The Church of Renko to each others. Soldiers, administration, men of churches and pilgrims used this road.

This Church of Hattula was built during years 1470 – 1490. It was popular target for pilgrims. Specialities of the church are collection of wooden sculptures, wooden font from medieval times and the oldest pulpit in Finland from 1550s.
