Welcome to the Rose Church

                                              Stordal old church

In the small village of Stordal, in Fjord kommune, you can visit the remarkable Rose Church from 1789. The whole interior - walls, ceiling and pillars - was decorated in 1799 by travelling craftsmen in a type of rose painting, and these original paintings make the church unique.  Many of the artefacts, including the font and a crucifix are relics from the old stave church that was situated here in the 12th - 13th century.. The church is adjacent to a small village museum with the parson´s house from 1850, a storehouse from 1750, and the "Løsetstova", a farmhouse from the 1790s. 
The Rose Church is located about 60 km east of Ålesund on route 650 which leads to the village of Geiranger and Trollstigen (the Troll´s Ladder).
