      section of the city of Bergen, Hordaland fylke (county), southwestern Norway, opposite Store Sotra Island. Raune Fjord and its smaller branches, especially Fana Fjord, cut into Fana's irregular coastline. Most of the settlements in Fana date to the early European Middle Ages, when the area was an agricultural hinterland of Bergen. By the 20th century, however, Fana had assumed a suburban aspect. Until 1973 it was a herredskommune (rural commune). Notable landmarks include a historic church in the town of Fana, a 12th-century stave (wooden-plank, or mast) church in Fantoft, and Troldhaugen, the home of the composer Edvard Grieg.
