Even though we were there in November with grey skies there was a great ambience surrounding this church, great condition and we enjoyed being alone to appreciate the historical value

Wow! What an amazing old 12th Century Church. You can go inside and get a pamphlet in your language and learn about this church. Very interesting walking around the gravestones too.

There are only a handful of stave churches left in Norway and this is one of the best. A beautiful building that has been well maintained.

Great explanation in own language, small but church in very good condition for the age. Good to have the explanation. Outside is great too, ask for the Colorado differences North and South side;-). Price is why it is not five stars
