VIDEO – Norway – Kaupanger stavkirke (stave church)

Kaupanger in Sogn og Fjordane was built in 1137 and is one of the oldest stave churches. It has been rebuilt and enlarged and was even painted white like other churches in Norway a hundred years ago. However the medieval construction is intact and it is regarded as a well preserved church.

This video is part of a series about stave churches in Norway. Audio: Medieval church music
