Brief history of the island: Själö or Nagu Själö (in Swedish) or Seili (in Finnish) is a small island in the Archipelago Sea, off the south west coast of Finland. Själö is part of the municipality of Väståboland. The island is known for its church and nature, a research institute and a former hospital. The first hospital on Själö was established in the 1620’s. Before that there were two farms on the islands belonging to the Crown and thus available when the authorities looked for a suitable island to which the leper hospital at the outskirts of Turku could be moved.
