There are only 27 of these rare stave churches left in Norway so I was delighted to come and look round this one as part of an organised coach trip to western Norway. They are called stave churches as it means the wood is stacked on top of each other. This one dates from the 13 th century. The wall... More

There is a plenty of Stave churches in Norway. This one is not nice, but not exceptionally big, old nor nice. It is truly average place, but still a nice one, so if you drive near Roldal, you probably should stop and pay a visit. The fee was around 30 NOK.

I have seen a few of them and the one in Røldal is in my opinion not very spectacular regarding the looks, architecture, woodcarving, size. Go visit it if you are in the area, but don't plan your whole... More

Røldal is about 100km inland from the coastal mid-point between Stavanger and Bergen, or 318km west of Oslo, on the E134 road. It is in a beautiful setting at the bottom of a lush valley with high hills on 3 sides. This stave church in Røldal was built around the year 1250, and during the middle ages was the most... More
