Alstadhaug - Norway Highlights:
Alstadhaug Church
The village of Alstadhaug lies on the coast of Norway just south of the Svartisen Glacier. In pagan times there were probably both a court and a county seat on the site where Alstadhaug Church now stands. The enormous burial mound "Olvishaugen" is found in the churchyard. The nave and chancel of the church were built around 1160-70. In 1250 an octagonal addition to the chancel was built - probably inspired by the Nidaros Cathedral. This model is unique for Alstadhaug and the Nidaros Cathedral.The church has been remodelled several times, but the interior still bears traces of the 13th century frescoes with familiar Biblical themes.
