Veøya is a small island near Molde. It is a medieval trading town. Veøya means 'holy island'; traces of pre-Christian cultures can be found there. You will also find graves from the 9e century; the oldest Christian graves in Norway; a stone church from the 11e century and a vicar's house from 1750. Due to its location, this island has long been used as an important point for trade and shipping. The island is worth a visit if you are a lover of history, culture and archaeology. In summer, a ferry runs between Molde and Veøya. The sailing is next to the ferry to Vestnes.
