undredal stave church

This is a simple, small one-nave church. It is mentioned for the first time in 1321, however, the year 1147 is inscribed upon the ceiling grinder.

This indicates that the Undredal stave church is one of the oldest preserved stave churches. The church was rebuilt in 1722. In 1962 it was restored, at which time an interesting discovery was made.

Paintings of mythic animals, as well as many symbolic signs, were found to be underlying at least three other coats of paint.

Undredal Stave Church is situated in Aurland
