Vang

Vang Church in Valdres  
The Vang church, built in 1840, is set on the banks of Lake Vangmj°sa.  Built in 1840, it occupies the site of an old stave church.

The Vang Stone

Close to Vang church there is a rune stone (Vangssteinen). "Vangssteinen" is about 2 meters tall, and the front is highly decorated. At the top there is a lion figure. Below there is foliage and a ribbon. 42 runic letters are cut into the stone. The runes are translated as follows: "The Goose-sons put up this stone after Gunnar, their brother.".  There are those who translate it as Gunnar, their nephew.
