 Tvindefossen Waterfall

Vossavangen is located in the center of Voss at the north-east edge of Vangsvatnet lake. Vossavangen takes its name from the Old Norwegian word vang (Norse Vangr) that can mean field or meadow, and refers to a large grass field lying between the church and Vangsvatnet lake.

According to legend, the people of Voss were forcibly converted to Christianity by king Olav, who later became St. Olav. A stone cross situated in Vossevangen is said to have been erected at this time. The town contains a stone church from 1277, with a 16th century excentric, octagonal steeple. Vangschurch is still in use with service every Sunday at 11.00.
