Giske church is a marble church from the 12th century. You can visit it on the island of Giske in the north-western part of Norway, close to Aalesund. The church is open for guided tours during the summer season.
The church is built in white marble, though it is impossible to say where it is from. It could just as well be Italian as Norwegian marble. Today the walls are covered by chalk on the outside and plaster on the inside, so that the marble is only visible at a few places, all on the outside. The architectural style is Norman.
The church was originally a family chapel consisting of the nave and chancel, but has been refurbished quite some times throughout the centuries. The most extensive renovation was carried out in the 1750s (initiated by Hans Strøm), and most of the interior today can be dated back to this renovation, carved by the local craftsman Jakob Sørensøn Giskegaard (1734-1827).
