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 »
Sweet little Church. I recommend if you get a tour
An interesting church with wonderful altar piece and pulpit.
