Giske Kirke reviews
Interesting cemetery, where most of the headstones show names from the town/island 'GIske." Whole island is flat. Nice views. Windy. more »
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. more »
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. more »
Sweet little Church. I recommend if you get a tour
An interesting church with wonderful altar piece and pulpit.
An ancient church, surrounded by ancient tombs and the tomb of a Viking who is bold. A local attraction is no less than the nearby beach.
Amazing. ...but permanently closed for tourist.
Lovely church. With a lot of history
