The historic, white, stone church was built in a cruciform design around the year 1300 using plans drawn up by an unknown architect.

  • Went to Sunnmore Museum and recommend a side visit to this lovely church. It was locked so we could not see inside ut the church has lovely wooden doors and steeple.

  • This is a very pretty church and super well kept cemetery. The grounds are immaculate and the church is small and very cute. This is the third time I have visited here and it doesn't change at all...

  • Interesting architecture from outside, in particular the tower, unfortunately was closed (5 pm).
  • Nice church
  • Very nice church. I was here a lot when I was a kid. I went to Larsgården school and we were here for a Christmas service. I lived not far away and was often past the church. I stopped by this summer, but unfortunately was not allowed to be inside the church.
  • Beautiful church with a lot of great prehistory.
  • This is a nice church located in beautiful surroundings close to Sunnmøre Museum.
