The stave church at Ringebu, built c.1220, is one of 28 surviving stave churches and is one of the largest in Norway and located 60 km north of Lillehammer.

Christianity was introduced into Norway around the year 1000 A.D. From then on during the middle ages until 1537, approximately 1000 stave churches were built. The Church in Norway was Roman Catholic at that time. The stave church at Ringebu, built c.1220, is one of 28 surviving stave churches and is one of the largest. Stave churches are irreplaceable cultural monuments and it is only in Norway that so many have survived. Characteristic for a stave church is that it has vertical posts and wall planks resting upon sills (ground beams). This is known as a stave wall. No nails were used in the construction. All joints were dovetailed. The St. Andrew crosses and the rounded arches act as braces, strengthening the construction. Of the original building only the nave remains and this has pillars (posts) also in the inner area.
