Røldal Stave Church
Røldal Stave Church is the most important tourist attraction in the village and a bit in the middle of the village center. The church is much visited due to its special decoration and history.
The church was built around the year 1250. Originally the church was very simple with only one room. After a quarter of an hour, the church was expanded, a porch was added and it was decorated inside. In the middle of the 1800th century, the church was rebuilt with table coverings both inside and out, in addition to being painted white. The church was restored in the early 1900th century and got back much of the decoration from the Middle Ages.
