About Roldal Stave Church

Roldal Stave Church (Roldal Stavkyrkje) is a picturesque wooden church dating back to around 1250 with 16th century interiors.

Pilgrims would travel to Roldal Stave Church in medieval times, especially to see its altar crucifix, which was believed to have healing properties. Today, visitors still flock to Roldal Stave Church, Norway’s only church of this kind to still act as a working church.
