Lunch at Kiala Manor

Kiala Manor (Kiala gård) was first mentioned in the 14th century. It was owned by Stålarm family from the 1300s to 1600s. The current wooden main building dates from 1796. Carl Axel Lewin established a distillery, which is where we had lunch after visiting Old Town Porvoo.

I didn’t take any photos of the distillery, maybe because it wasn’t noteworthy, or I didn’t have time? Can’t remember now, but it had the same bricks as the gift shop shown above.

I thought this was an interesting setup outside the gift shop. Haven’t seen geraniums like that since I lived on the East Coast!

They host a lot of events here, so I’m guessing this was for some kind of party.

Lunch, by the way, was fantastic. No photos, because sometimes you just want to enjoy the company and the food, you know?

Great weekend, everyone!

    Looks like a place worth visiting.
    I agree, sometimes you have to let the camera rest.

  2. Yes, I remember seeing a gorgeous rainbow in southern Arizona, a sighting that I suspect doesn’t happen often. My first instinct was to pull out the camera and take a photo, but then I stopped. I just wanted to enjoy the moment and not experience it through a lens. Have a nice weekend!
