- 1 Hollolan kirkko (Hollola parish church), Rantatie 917 (12 km northwest of the town centre). Hollola's medieval stone church with 550 seats. The church belongs to the third generation of Finnish stone churches, which were built between 1480 and 1560. It was completed in its current form between 1495 and 1510: the sacristy in 1495, the church hall in 1500 and the armory after 1505. The stone church is famous for its well-preserved wooden sculptures. Due to lightning striking the roof, the wooden roof structures of the church burned in 1642. The church was completely renovated in 1934–1935. On the south side of the church, there is a yellow belfry designed by Carl Ludvig Engel in Empire style, built between 1829 and 1831.
