But we still had a half a day to do something, so we decided to see Raseborg Castle. It's initial construction period was around the same time as Turku but during the 16th century it lost its importance and was abandoned. The area around it never grew in importance as Turku did.
The directions we had from our guide book were very sketchy. We headed to the town that was quoted as the location using our Tom Tom GPS but getting there found nothing and no sign of anything. I got out my phone and used Google Maps. It has the actual castle ruins on the map. Plugging it in, we headed off for a 20 to 30 minute ride through all kinds of dirt roads where it looks like we are going through people's yards. Finally we get to...THE PLACE WE STARTED FROM! Google Maps now takes us to a point 3 minutes from our original start where we find Raseborg Castle
But before we go to Roseborg, a few shots from our last night in Ekenas.

Virtually the only restaurant opened in this vacation town was called:
We did NOT order burritos
Upon our arrival at Raseborg we found:
But there was some good history and photo shots nonentheless
And our sign of the day
Please, if you are disobeying our 'do not climb' sign, don't look like a dweeb when doing so.
