NO / Gol stave church

We have earlier informed about Borgund Stave Church but there is several other Stave churches worth visiting, one of them are the Stave Church in Gol.

The original church, Garðar kirkja,  were created around year 1200 but have some elements which can be dated all the way back to 1157. Even if the original church were moved to Oslo, it’s well worth to visit the New Gol Stave church.
