Survivor from a razed town

A wooden built church which survived the destruction of WW2. Small but worth a visit. Appeared closed but the door was unlocked when we tried it.

This is a very attractive, fairly typical, Norwegian church... we drove up to see it and there was adequate parking for a motorhome... disappointed that it was not open... made a lovely photo though!

I really don't want to be mean, but why is this considered a attraction? It is an ordinary church, i failed to see anything special. The buildings around are indeed uglier :)

Nice looking church that should have been part of our trip to North Cape, but sadly it wasn't open. The guide said there'd been some dispute between the volunteers, so no-one would open it up now. A shame.

This 300+ year old church has a great history. During WW II, the German army burned down the entire town so that the allies would not be able to inhabit the location.

The church is open all day and visitors are welcome. The church is well-kept inside and out and is modestly decorated. The church has an on-going restoration program and... More

This is the main church in the picturesque town of Honningsvag. The views are spectacular as it is on raised ground. It is open for visitors throughout the day.

This quaint little white church was built in 1885 and somehow survived the WW2 bombings. It's very well maintained both inside and outside.
