Panorama picture from Mandal Municipality in Norway




SITTING ON THE DOCK OF THE BAY

The town is built on both sides of the Mandalselva river mouth. Mandal salmon was a 17th century delicacy. Salmon vanished from the river for many years, owing to pollution and acid rain, but as a result of liming and cultivation, it has now returned.

For a sense of the town's history, take a stroll through the wellpreserved wooden houses in the pedestrian precinct. Mandal is a lively commercial centre, with plenty of interesting shops.
