Tenala

Only 15 kilometers from the city center of Ekenäs, you'll find the idyllic village Tenala. This village is surrounded by beautiful nature and romantic countryside scenery. Bargains from the Bronze Age show that there has been settlement in Tenala for 4000 years.

Tenala consists of several small villages with approximately 2500 inhabitants and plenty of summer guests. 

There has been settlement in Tenala for over 4000 years. Graves from the Bronze Age have been found in the village and also a large bargain from the Iron Age. The bargain is probably from a ship that is built at the Fastarby’s fields. The name Tenala has its origin in the words ‘thegn’ which means warrior and ‘ala’ which stands for a place of sacrifice.

Locally produced cheese and interesting events

Today Tenala is a place with an active village association as well as other associations and clubs. During summer a lot of different events are organized, for instance, the Tenala Day and dance at the Torparrian. These events attract visitors from every corner of Raseborg. If you’re longing for a good laugh, we recommend visiting the Tenala UF:s amateur theatre at Bygdegården, or it’s summer theatre. In Tenala you’ll find a library, a kindergarten, a home for the elderly and a grocery store. Fishing and agriculture have always been important livelihoods for the villagers.

While visiting Tenala we highly recommend popping by the grocery store Frimans Diversehandel. They sell cheese produced in Tenala and other local goodies. Next to the store you’ll find the restaurant Bakfickan that serves delicious food. You can also visit the church in Tenala or go to a museum. You can choose between the Hembygdsmuseum (museum about the history of Tenala) and the Lantbruksmuseum (museum of agriculture).
