Pappilanniemi rocky shores

Pappilanniemi is a peninsula near the centre of Lappeenranta with lush vegetation and rocky shores. Its vegetation is exceptionally lush since lowering water levels during the local ice lake stages did not wash away the fine material deposits in the area.

A nature path winds around the peninsula.
