REINLI STAVE CHURCH

Some believe this church was built about 1140 AD but this is probably wrong because the necessary technique by then weren´t available. The church is mentioned for the first time in 1327 AD, but was probably built in about 1290-1320 AD.

The altar screen is made from a medieval Madonna triptych and the pulpit bears the stamp of the Renaissance.

From the church site, one have a magnificent grand view of the Valdres district.

Reinli Stave Church is located near Bagn.
 Stave Churches of Norway Church buildings tell some of the story of this cultural convergence.
