Sola ruin church

Oppdatert: 8. des. 2022

The Sola ruin church has been rebuilt on the ruins of the medieval church from approx.year 1120.

Sola Ruinkyrkje was built in the 12th century and was in use until 1842 when it began to decay. After this, the church stood as a ruin until it was bought by the painter Johan Bennetter in 1871. He converted the church into a residence and studio and it was used for this until 1907. After that, the church remained as a ruin.Large parts of the church were demolished during the Second World War. In the 1980s, restoration work began, a collaboration between the National Archives and Sola municipality, and today's ruined church was completed in 1995. Since then, the church has been frequently visited, and both concerts and other gatherings are organised. The church is also one of the region's most popular churches to get married in. The church has capacity for 68 people. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about tours, guiding or renting.
