 the Vikings

Avaldsnes bas been called Norway´s oldest capital as this was the seat of King Harald Fairhair after his conquest at tbe battle of Hafrsfjord. Today, Olav´s Church whose construction commenced in 1250, is the main monument relating to this great period of Norway"s history. The church is also a symbol of the unification of Norway completed during the reign of King Håkon Håkonsson.

Avaldsnes was one of the major power centres of the Viking era, so now they have a big Viking festival there every summer.
