Fodor's Expert Review Brønnøy Church

Brønnøysund Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Brønnøysund's oldest surviving landmark, the handsome neo-Gothic stone church at the center of town, was originally built around 1200. It's been rebuilt several times, most recently in 1870 after a devastating lightning strike and subsequent fire in 1866. Besides a section of the medieval choir and nave, the oldest relic in the church, a carved wooden crucifix, dates back to pre-Reformation times. A 10-year restoration project was finished in 2008, and the church looks almost new.
