 Nesseby kirke

Nesseby kirke ( Nesseby Church)
Internally this long church has a narrower and lower-rising choir with sacristies positioned alongside the choir. A saddle ceiling has been installed over the actual choir. In the nave there are wooden columns that run from the floor to the ceiling, insinuating the central nave and the two side naves. This was a motif commonly observed in Grosch-churches from the 1850s, and at the Kistrand Church. The ceiling also distinguishes the central nave, where the flat ceiling is raised in relation to the ceilings of the side naves, a feature that Grosch derived from German church designs.
