St. Olof by Grall19 St. Olof by Grall19
Exterior view of St. Olaf's chapel at Hardemo. The chapel was built around the 1930's, the doors have smithed decors depicting events from the St. Olaf legend.

Footnote: Why the title is called "St. Olof" and why I refer to it as "St. Olaf" in the description is because "Olof" is the swedish name for it, Olaf is the english name, and Olav is the norwegian one.

Comments and criticism are appreciated!

This is just stunning. It looks like something one would stumble across while hiking in the woods.

It is actually just a stone's throw away from a forest, as you can see in this image [link]
It is close to an old well, too.

I find it quite peculiar that this chapel is made in wood. It is after all built in the 30's. There are however a few old churches out of stone left that's built even in the 11th century.

Yeah, that wood seems quite "recent". Here we have lots and lots of churches (some are identical) but I'm not surprised, Italy has always been a religious place..I'm more interested in different styles from up there. This is a good one.
