The island Kinn is the home of the beautiful stone church from the Middle Ages. The mythical church is built in a roman building style, and has been used since the 12th century. This is the oldest church in Sunnfjord Region, and was traditionally linked to the legend of St. Sunniva and the Selju Menn.

The church sits at the base of the steep mountain of Kinn, and the massive Kinnaklova is its nearest neighbour. The famous cleft cliff of Kinn is famous along the coast, as its charecteristic shape has always been a guide for sailors along our coast.
