St. Nicolai Kapell —Undredal Stave Church

Undredal Norway

Norwegian Lutheran State Church

Dedicated to St. Nicolas, this is the smallest of the authentic medieval wooden stave churches—the nave is less than 13 feet wide. It may have been built as early as AD 1147. The church lost its original look by 1722 as log construction replaced the stave, a spire added, and the exterior paneled. The interior of the nave is from the original medieval church.
