The area in between you and the church is the former middle class area, Ytre Markevei, with the alleys Nykirkesmuget and Klokkersmuget.

By clicking on the map you will be able to explore this particular area of Nordnes, and enjoy the historical atmosphere and the wonderful scenery. We would like you to visit some of the houses to show you the change in appearance and give you an idea of how people lived over the years.


Thank you for joining us!
