Krosshaugen is located slightly north of Haugesund City Centre, next to Norway's National Monument Haraldshaugen and the popular coastal path.
Korsshaugen i Huagesund is one of 60 stone crosses in Rogaland. The stone cross dates from the earliest Christian period in Norway (about the year 1000). The place has functioned as a Parliament site and the cross may be a monument to farmers who converted to the Christian faith during sessions of Parliament. It is also believed that Christian mass was said beside these stone crosses before churches were built.
