Kyrkja is a mountain of Innlandet in southern Norway. Kyrkja is nicknamed “The Chruch” because its peak is extremely steep and resembles a church spire. Kyrkyja was thought to be unclimbable until the 19th century, due to its steepness. Despite its slopes, climbing to the top is a day’s hike, helped by the rocks covering the mountainside. Kyrkyja used to be covered in snow, but climate change has severely lessened the amount of snow on the mountain.
The beautiful church dates back to 1158-59, which was still the main church in Lom. The oldest part was built in Romanesque style. By archeological excavations in 1973 interesting findings were made; more than 2.000 coins and a love message with carved runes on a stick and this church has the largest collection of paintings found in any Norwegian church, most of them done by Eggert Munch.
