Kuparivuori, located right at the center of Naantali, offers some of the best views in Naantali. Thanks to the steep hills the sea views stretch far.

Rakkaudenpolku path ("the path of love") runs through the Kuparivuori hills. The trail and the hill are popular places during summer, but worth a visit during all seasons!

A tip! When you are in Naantali, visit the Särkänsalmi bridge between islands Luonnonmaa and Särkkä. Close to the bridge, there is a place where you can get nice photographs of the archipelago!

An info board nearby tells you more about the history of the tower. There is also a beautiful nature trail close to the tower, which passes by an ancient shingle beach formed during ice age. You can find a table and benches for a snack break by the tower.
