  • The altarpiece in Førde church

    Quite a few people have become interested in the altarpiece in Førde church once they have seen it. It is unique, rich in motif, fine in the carving, and for its age with a well-preserved decoration. The altarpiece, which is from 1643, was donated to the church by the vicar Peder J. Finde and his wife, Barbara Nitter.
