We had a port day in Alesund and this church was one of our stops. After a few tunnels and bridges between the islands, we came to this church. The church has significant history to the area and is very nice inside. The cemetery also...More

The Marble Church dates from 1170. Most of the marble is covered with a plaster with only two panels exposed. The church was closed and we could not see the interior. The cemetery is still active. It is interesting to see that most of the...More

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.
