This is a very attractive, fairly typical, Norwegian church... we drove up to see it and there was adequate parking for a motorhome... disappointed that it was not open... made a lovely photo though!

A wooden built church which survived the destruction of WW2. Small but worth a visit. Appeared closed but the door was unlocked when we tried it.

I really don't want to be mean, but why is this considered a attraction? It is an ordinary church, i failed to see anything special. The buildings around are indeed uglier :)

Nice looking church that should have been part of our trip to North Cape, but sadly it wasn't open. The guide said there'd been some dispute between the volunteers, so no-one would open it up now. A shame.
