Fredskapellet (Norwegian: Fredskapellet) is a chapel in the municipality of Narvik in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the town of Narvik. The chapel is part of the Narvik parish in the Ofoten deanery in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The brick chapel was built in 1957 on the site of another chapel that was destroyed during World War II. The present-chapel is located next to the main cemetery for the town of Narvik and therefore the chapel is mostly used for funerals.[1]
