St. Michael's Cathedral is a Lutheran temple in Turku, Finland. It was built in 1899-1905. and consecrated in honor of the archangel Gabriel.

In 1894, a competition was held in Turku for the construction of a new city Lutheran church. The competition was won by a 23-year-old architect, a recent graduate of the Helsinki Polytechnic Institute Lars Sonck. This was his first independent project. The church was built in the neo-gothic style.

There are 1250 seats in the temple. Nowadays, St. Michael's Cathedral is used mainly as a concert hall for concerts of classical and organ music. In 2002, the cathedral organ was restored and improved, which became a record holder: its longest pipe (9.6 meters) is the largest in the country.
