in brief

LAG Satasilta consists three municipalities, Eura, Eurajoki and Säkylä in the southwestern part of Finland. The population is about 27 000.

 Our region is easily accessible with good transport links, and the cities of Rauma, Pori, Turku, and Tampere are all within a short distance. Our vibrant business sector and active communities make our region a pleasant place to live and visit. In addition, our attractive tourism options and rich culture ensure that there is plenty to see and experience in our region.

The area has a long and uninterrupted history of settlement, stretching back as far as the late Iron Age. This can be seen and tasted in the area’s living traditions of handicrafts and food. Here visitors can immerse themselves in history in the Kauttua Ruukinpuisto (Old Iron Works Park), the Mannila Viking Age village, as well as many other historic sites.

With the lakes Pyhäjärvi and Köyliönjärvi and their outlets, the region’s natural surroundings are very much characterized by water. Today, these waters offer a diverse array of opportunities for recreation – both on the waterside and on the blue waves. Besides, in lake Pyhäjärvi you can find various examples of successfull lake protection projects -also in the international level.

Area is dominated by vast cultivated areas: vegetables such as cucumber, carrot, onion, potato and sugar beet are grown here. Many alimentary production companies are based in the area.
