The Grip Stave Church is a pretty red-colored wooden church in the middle of the deserted island of Grip, that would hardly go unnoticed. It has been used as a gathering place for prayers and celebrations, from 1470 CE, though now it is open only in summers when when one can attend the Sunday Service. It does not have a cemetery of its own owing to the barrenness of the surrounding area. The altar of the Blessed Virgin Mary was gifted by the Princess of Austria.
