About
Pilgrims from all the Nordic countries came here. The Reformation in 1536 put an official stop to the catholic pilgrimages to Lovoya but people continued to come to the well and church for years on. The church was in ruins for many years until preservation and restoration was initiated in 1882 and it was reopened in 1950.

A very beautiful stone chapel with great history. If you ever get a chance to go inside - take it. It is very beautiful. The Olavsbrønnen (Olavs Well) Outside is a place people throw a coin in for good luck

The Lovoy Chapel is dated back to the 13th Century and the place are surrounded by old myths and legends. Like the history telling why the Chapel was built and also the St. Olav well, that once said to have healing water which people travelled long distances to get hold on. The Chapel is unfortunately closed most of the year, but have some masses, during the summer.

This beautiful chapel lies in Horten, Norway. It is made of all stone and dates back to 13th century. Its location, Løvøya, lies down by the sea surrounded by trees which makes it truly magical. Worth a visit if you are around. There is also a well which you can throw coins into for good fortune. Suitable for all ages.
