Selja Monastery

We drive through a contrasting landscape of mountain and ocean to the picturesque village Selje. From here, there is a 15 minutes boat ride to Selja Island, hosting the ruins of Selja Monastery, built by the Benedictine monks in the early 12th century in memory of Sta. Sunniva. The Legend says that the Irish king’s daughter Sunniva died as a martyr here, and became the saint of Western Norway.
