RISØR

The architecture in Risør bears witness to 300 years of development, and the town is known for its beautifully preserved wooden buildings. The town first flourished as a port for exporting timber to the Netherlands. A memorial to this era is the elegant Baroque style church, "The Church of the Holy Spirit", built in 1647.
