Stave church at Vågåmo

Stave church at Vågåmo Stave churches (stavkirker) are build in a special architecture called the stave technique. The stave construction method uses vertical posts (staves) that rest on a foundation as the main support structure, rather than a horizontal laying of planks or beams upon a foundation. These staves supports the roof. Around the staves the wooden church is then constructed. There are only 32 stave churches left of the almost 1300 which once stood in Norway; most of them burned down or were pulled down. The stave church of Vågåmo was first mentioned in writing in 1130.
