Overview

Ål Stave church was erected around 1170 and torn down in 1880. The stave churches are a wooden building with a carrying construction of poles. The stave churches are today counted as among the most important European architecture in wood from medieval times.

The stave church in Ål with its 18 poles was the largest church in Hallingdal. The church also changed appearance several times with expansions and reconstructions. In Ål Stave church they also found an ancient 'rune' inscription that said who was the constructor of the church.

This site is located in the centre of Ål, parking by the schools.
