Tampereen Tuomiokirkko (Tampere Cathedral), one of the city's best-known sites, aroused vehement debates when it was built at the beginning of the 20th Century. The daring paintings by famous Finnish artist Hugo Simberg, inside the church, caused controversy with visions of snakes, naked boys and skeletons. Of course, this has made the building popular internationally. The church is used by the Cathedral Congregation and the Diocese of Tampere (one of Finland's eight Dioceses) as their primary place of worship.
