Lade Church is believed to be one of Norway's oldest stone churches. It is unknown when when it was exactly built, but people started using it around 1190. The current church is assumed to be the successor of two other churches, which are believed to have been one stone church and one stave church. During the wars with Sweden and later during World War II, the church was used as a food stock. There is actually a swastika scribed in a stone in the wall near the Altar.

Lade Church is a long church and it seats 160 people. The nave is 16.5 by 10.7 metres. The Altarpiece dates from 1709 when it was received as a gift from Ellen Rovert from the nearby Lade Gård estate.

5/5 ble ikke trukket ned i jorda under tilbakekomsten av de døde. Akkurat sånn en kirkegård skal være.

Se siente el espíritu de Dios y el pastor es muy amable.

Гарна, маленька і затишна церква. Протестантська, відкрита тільки тоді коли служба служиться, весілля або відспівують покійних.

Monet's Garden

Claude Monet lived for forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, in Giverny. With a passion for gardening as well as for colours, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art. Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionnism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.

In 1890 Monet had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lilies, the wisterias and the azaleas.

Today the Monet's Garden is open to the public.
