  Torpo church - the interior
by evaanna
 
 

Torpo stave church is definitely worth a visit inside. The beautifully carved beams and, above all, the colourful painted canopy with scenes from the Bible are absolutely unique. The crossing beams make the construction of the church transparent, with just wooden joints and no nails having been used to keep the structure together. A real masterpiece of mediaeval craftsmanship!
