Övertorneå kyrka är väl värd ett besök. Den är ganska speciell exteriört, med separat klocktorn, och vacker innuti. Där finns märkvärdiga träskulpturer(bl.a "Mantelmadonnan") från en kyrka från 1300-talet, som fördes bort av en vårflod. Sveriges äldsta orgel i bruk finns i kyrkan. Den fanns fram till slutet av 1700-talet i Tyska kyrkan i Stockholm, då den såldes till Övertorneå.
