 Vågan kirke

 
Vågan kirke ( Vågan Church)
The original altarpiece from approximately 1900 was replaced in 1948, and now hangs on a sidewall. It is a crucifix framed by Neo-Gothic styled moulding. It appears similar to the altarpieces in Buksnes in Lofoten and Neiden in Finnmark. All of these are from the same period and may be cast imports.
