BORGUND STAVE CHURCH

Built just before 1150, and dedicated to the Apostle St. Andrew. It is one of the best preserved stave churches and it has not been added or rebuilt since it was new. The pulpit is from the last period of the 1500´s. The altar-piece is from 1620.

On the church walls are found several runic inscriptions. Two of them are dated back to the middle of the 1100´s.

They read: "Tor wrote these runes in the evening at the St. Olav´s Mass" and "Ave Maria".

Borgund Stave Church are located in Lærdal.
