The houses under the rock “Helleren”

Here are more shots from our road trip.

The houses under the rock called “Helleren” are situated by Jøssingfjord in Rogaland county, southwestern Norway. The houses are special as they are completely protected against rain and snow. People have lived under there rock since the 16th century. The houses that are there today were built in the beginning of the 19th century. It’s a truly fascinating place, although I think I would feel a bit claustrophobic living there myself.. 😉
