The Snåsa church on a sunny October morning.

The history of the proud Snåsa church begins quite modestly in the first half of the 1200s. The present church was designed by architect Bergstrøm, Trondheim and finished in 1869. The old part constitutes the chancel and the sacristy of this church. The entry to the sacristy is behind the altarpiece, and in the sacristy – the former chansel – an old altarpiece still stands.

Snåsa church


Snåsa is a municipality in Nord-Trøndelag and its center and the church lies at the east end of the 42 kilometer long lake Snåsavatnet. Many Laps live here, and there is a Sami school and a Sami museum, therefore the name is written both in Norwegian and Sami. The coat-of-arms depicts the lady's slipper orchid (Cypripedium calceolus) that grows here.
