RINGEBU STAVE CHURCH

The church was probably built about 1225-1250 AD and it appears in written sources for the first time in 1270 AD. This is a triple-nave stave church.

The St. Laurentius image and the font are medieval, the altar-screen from 1686, and the pulpit and the chancel-arch monogram from 1702. This church seem to have been built as a cruciform church originally, but the cross arms were replaced with new and even bigger arms during 1630.

The church was restored during 1921.

Ringebu Stave Church is located in Ringebu.
 Stave Churches of Norway Church buildings tell some of the story of this cultural convergence.
