Hopperstad Stavkirke
Vik - Norway

Hopperstad Stavkirke (Stave Church) is one of the oldest stave churches in Norway and dates back to 1140. But, 700 years later the church was left
and its exterior stripped. The church was in very poor condition in many years intill "Preservation of Norwegian Ancient Monuments" purchased the
building in 1880, and architect Peter Andreas Blix reconstructed the church. During this reconstruction they found carved sections underneath the floor
which indicates that the new church replaced an older church, which was probably built in the latter half of the 11th century.
