Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Made in 15th Century

These are my entries to Cee’s fun foto challenge: Anything man-made. There are uncountable beautiful items available to choose from. I decided to go with items of historical importance. The pictures are from Portugal.

The first picture is a church and the second of tiles. In Portugal the use of such tiles to cover walls and floors dates back to the end of 15th Century.

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Every Angle

Fantoft Stave Church:

The church was originally built in Fortun in Sogn, a village near inner or eastern end of Sognefjord around the year 1150and worked as a church for the little place at the foot of Fortun Sognefjellet until the end of the 1800s. The church was bought by consul Fredrik Georg Gade and saved by moving it in pieces to Fantoft near (now in) Bergen in 1883. Outside the church stands a stone cross from Tjora in Sola.
