About

Mikaelshulen, or "St. Michaels Church in the Rock", is a cave on the east side of Norsjø, some 30 m above the surface of the water.

Masses were held there even after the Catholic era. There is said to have been a burial ground on the top of the rock above the cave.

The cave may be reached by boat and on foot, but access is difficult.
