Places of interest
In the course of its history Säynätsalo as a whole has acquired an unusually large number of architectural locations of international, national and regional importance. In addition to academician Alvar Aalto many others have left their mark on the islands, including Wivi Lönn, one of the first female architects in Finland, and Professor of Architecture Armas Lindgren. The islands of Säynätsalo are also rich in attractions of other kinds.
