Norway Debut, Part 1: Ålesund

This week we hit yet another Faulty Towers milestone with our Norway debut, starting in Teaterfabrikken in the beautiful town of Ålesund.

Surrounded by fjords and the high peaks of the Sunnmøre Alps, Ålesund is a sea port that is noted for its unique concentration of Art Nouveau architecture. In 1904 the town – built largely of wood – was the scene of a great fire in which most buildings were destroyed during the night, and the population had to leave the town with only a few minutes’ notice. Now the town is characterised by it’s colourful buildings and Art Nouveau style buildings which are a dream to photograph! Here are some of our photos from the tour.
