  • Interesting cemetery, where most of the headstones show names from the town/island 'GIske." Whole island is flat. Nice views. Windy.

  • We stopped for a short visit at this church. It is marble on the exterior that has been painted. Inside is very nice. It only takes a short visit as the church is small. There is parking available.

  • Church is a bit hard to get to but once there is impressive. Very old but in good nick. Worth time also to wander the cemetery. They lived a long time back in the day.
