St Paraskeva’s Orthodox Church in Saatse
Saatse's new stone church was completed in 1801 and took its name from the martyr Paraskeva, from the town of Ikanion in Greece. The location of the old church is marked by a stone column close to the new church. The church is home to the 'Royal Gates', restored on the basis of elements of the iconostasis from the old wooden church. They may no longer be in use, but allow visitors to admire the art of baroque construction. The church also has a 15th century stone cross which is thought to work miracles. In memory of St Paraskeva there are two holy days in Saatse: the last Friday in July and 10 November.
