TINGVOLL CHURCH

Is a stone church in the Romantic and Gothic style that was built over 800 years ago. In the walls of the church there is an extensive system of corridors, unique for an ecclesiastic building in the Nordic region. The interior is rich.

The pulpit is late Renaissance with figures in distinctive Spanish Baroque style. The altarpiece and "epitaphium" are carved in Baroque style. The churchyard has been selected as the district's millennium site, as a recognition that the area has been an important gathering place through the ages.
