Notes on the Geography of Norway: Urnes and Borgund Stave Churches: Photo 20

world pictures Norway: Urnes and Borgund Stave Churches




The Society for the Preservation of Ancient Norwegian Monuments bought the Urnes church in 1881, and the church is now on UNESCO's World Heritage List. Photography is forbidden as, for some reason, disrespectful, so you'll have to settle for this unfocused snap. Through the haze you can see the block capitals, along with the L-block arches. The staves, trimmed to a narrower profile, continue to the roof.
