Dønnes Church was probably built here at the request of Paul Vågaskalm who was governor of Alstahaug. It was built on the site of an older church sometime between 1200 and 1300. The characteristic onion dome was added in 1866. The church organ, built by Paul Christian Brantzeg, was installed in 1866.
Dønnes was established as a municipality on 1 July 1888 when the western part of the municipality of Nesna was separated to form a new municipality. Initially, Dønnes had a population of 1,348. On 1 January 1962 the municipality of Dønnes ceased to exist. The part of Dønnes on the island of Tomma (population: 80) was merged into Nesna. The remainder of Dønnes (population: 1,348) was merged with the municipality of Nordvik, the part of Herøy on the island of Dønna, and the island of Løkta in Nesna to create the new municipality of Dønna.

This old church has been looked after with lots of care and attention. Really impressive. It’s situated next to an old mansion on historic grounds. It’s really worth taking a sightseeing trip around..... more »
