Kviteseid old church

About

The Old Chuch of Kviteseid was built of stone about 1150 and dedicated to St Olav. The roof was decorated by Thomas Blixius in 1714 in twenty parts.

The church has retained its original entrance with a carved wooden arch above the door depicting two dragons entwined in eternal struggle.

The church has a particularly evocative churchyard.

Guidet tours are arranged in the summer by the nearby open air museum Kviteseid Bygdetun, or pre-booked by Western Telemark Museum, +47 35609090, post@vtm.no .

The Old Church of Kviteseid is still in use.
