This Stave church was built in the 13th century sometime between the years 1200 and 1250.
"Stave churches are considered to be among the most important examples of wooden Medieval architecture in Europe....A stave church is made of wood, and the construction is made out of poles ("staver" in Norwegian), hence the name. Most of the remaining stave churches in Norway were built between 1150 and 1350."
The Røldal Stave Church is one of only 28 remaining Stave churches in Norway. Inside the church is a crucifix from around 1250 that is said to sweat once a year, on July 6, with miraculous healing power.
If you are a history lover, then I highly recommend visiting Røldal Stave Church!! There is an entrance fee, but it is worth the price. It truly is a Religious and Architectural Treasure from the Middle Ages!! A beautiful sight in the amazing country of Norway!!
