Ruins of the Dalsvik Mansion Gazebo

Today we visited the ruins of a gazebo in Laaksolahti (Dalsvik). The gazebo, or pavilion belonged to the Dalsvik Mansion. If all this sounds funny, in Finnish place was called "Laaksolahden kartanon huvimaja".

Jarmo and I found out about this from Tony Hagerlund's blog on local interesting sites in Espoo.

The gazebo must have been interesting, the ruins are huge! And while the surrounding areas don't really lead you to believe this, the views are magnificent. The ruins are on top of a cliff, and you can see the Long Lake (Pitkäjärvi) quite well.

I wonder what happened to the gazebo... I remember reading about its fate, but for the life of me can't remember where.
