In the middle of this island on the northwest coast of Norway, protected by houses and on the island’s highest point, you will find this little red stave church, standing as it has stood since approximately year 1300. It has ever since been a meeting point in both happy times and in sad times.

The altarpiece was donated by the princess Elisabeth of the Netherlands in gratitude for her rescue at sea by Norwegian sailors during a violent storm in 1515. The wall paintings date back to approximately 1620.
