  • Dolm church is the oldest existing building on Hitra in Trøndelag. The church is originally from the late Middle Ages and replaced an older and small stave church from the Viking Age, approx. year 1000, at Undås. Dolm church is built in Romanesque style with round arches and thick stone walls. It has been fire-fired after lightning strikes and re-erected four times (1709, 1772, 1848 and 1920). However, findings indicate that there have been several fires, and that at least once people have burned inside the church. Dolm church is surrounded by many legends. Among other things, it has been said that there is a curse on it, that the church will burn every hundred years. It is also told that it is joking at the old cemetery. Really worth a visit
  • Great place. Diligently used by photographers and hikers.
