Heddal stave church

On my way over to the west coast of Norway I stopped off to look at Heddal stave church. Stave churches are medieval wooden churches. This particular one is Norway’s largest stave church. It was built in the beginning of the 13th century. In Norway there are 29 historical stave churches left.
