Lesja Church was built in 1749. It is best known for its richly carved interior. The pulpit, chancel screen and altar were carved by the Norwegian Jacob Berveinson Klukstad in the mid-eighteenth century.
The acanthus leaf style of decoration is extensively used here and people come from afar to study it. The pews and remainder of the interior were painted by the Norwegian artist Ragnavald Einbu around 1925. The church also has a baptismal font and pulpit from an older church.
This is a newer church, built in 1964. It is also relatively small with 120 seats. The church actually stands in the same place where Lesjaskog Church once stood before it was moved in 1855.
This church was built in 1697 and originally placed at Lesjaverk before being moved to Lesjaskog in 1855. There has been many renovations since this time.
Lesja Verk Gård
This was a principle location for ironworks of the region during the period 1660 - 1812.
You will find leftovers from the large mineral oven from 1757, the only one of its kind in Norway from this period.
The old main building from 1734 is now conserved.
The establishers of Lesja Verk built their own church for the workers in 1695, but the church was moved to Lesjaskog in 1855.
You will see the signpost for Gruvlia five kilometers west of Lesja Verk, along the E136. You can follow the pathway which has information posts which tells you about the mining era in Lesja.
The minerals were brought down from the mines to Lake Lejsaskog and from there with boat or horse and sleigh to the Lesja Verk Gård.
Sagelva Museum in Brøstdalen
The Sagelva Museum is a restored sawmill with a saw that was originally an old gate saw dating from 1712. There is full activity at the sawmill throughout the summer. If you come from Bjorli heading for Åndalsnes, turn off at the Brøste sign and follow the road until you arrive at the sawmill.
There are three memorial stones at Lesjaskog Church for the emigration to America and for American soldiers who lost their lives.
At the farms of Einbu in Lesjaskog, memorial stones are raised along the E136, for the journey of St. Olav through Lesja.
At Knipa Farm, between the E136 and the railway, you will find a memorial stone for the train accident on this distance under World War II.
Jora bru lies on the border between the municipalities of Lesja and Dovre. It is the longest of the four granite bridges along the Rauma Railway. The bridge is 85.4 metres long, and it took seven years to build.
Kylling bru is a 59-metre long and 76-metre high bridge. It is a remarkable piece of engineering. The bridge was built between 1913 and 1922 by the local population, with the help of hired experts. Precisely cut blocks of stone were transported three kilometres by rail to the construction site and placed one on top of the other to make the country's second highest arched stone bridge. The Rauma Railway crosses the bridge daily.
Other small bridges include Likedan bru at Stuguflotten, Nystuen bru (Bjorli) and Hammeren bru (Lesjaskog).
At the Lora River there is a restored mill from around 1326. The mill was still in use up until 1943.
From the E136 in Lora, take the exit towards "Lordalsvegen" and to the sign "Lorkvenne". A 1,2-kilometre walking path along the river to the mill.
