Hiort-Engan cafè og galleri

One of the most colorful historical figures of Røros was Peder Hiort (1715-1789), director of the Copperworks, church builder, theologian and historian. At his country retreat at Engan by the Glåma river he planted a baroque garden, the remains of which can still be enjoyed by visitors. It has tree-lined roads and paths, arbors, fountains and sculptures, all in carefully arranged symmetry. The restored Hiort-church from 1765 is also worth a visit.
