Leksvik Church

Leksvik Kirke is a church in Leksvik, Norway. The wooden church was built in 1667 and is situated about 500 metres from downtown Leksvik. During the reconstruction in the 1860s the church lost much of its older furniture, but during reconstruction efforts in the 1950s and 1960s, much of the 17th century furniture was returned. Today the church has new seating, installed in the mid 1990s. The church also contains a very rare crucifix from the Middle Ages, and the sword that Anders Solli used to kill the wolves from the legend about the wolves that attacked and killed him in the woods of Leksvik in 1612.
