The church is closed to the picnic and there is little to see on this island. Not even worth doing on a local buss skip

Today, I was driving around on the islands around Ålesund. Traveling through the two tunnels and finally over the bridge we arrived at the Giske Church. This has much history, just explore & enjoy.

This is a Church from 1100, which has been restored to a very good standard. Based on the island of Giske - rich Viking history.
