from the 12th century is dedicated to St. Olof. In the choir's ceiling paintings from the 16th century.

7 July 2013: Hallaröds church from the 12th century is consecrated to St. Olof. Sankt Olof (about 950 to 1030) was King of Norway which he christened. He was killed in the battle of Stiklestad, wonders happened at his grave. The church has been rebuilt and built over the years. The church is normally locked but open for several weekends now in the summer, this tells a man to me. In the porch is an exhibition about the restoration in 1953, when some of the inventory that had been lost, returned to the Church.

The church is not big. On the north side hangs a communion scene from the 17th century, it replaced the former altarpiece. What primarily distinguishes the church is the ceiling paintings in the chancel of the early 16th century. I light a candle in the light bearer and study the paintings. It produced the Creation and the expulsion from paradise. Over the entrance to the chancel hangs a triumphal crucifix. The altarpiece is a reconstruction of the altarpiece from the 16th century. Most of the original characters could be found and gained their place in the renovation in 1953.

On the south side is a small altar with a wooden figure depicting Mary with the baby. At the altar stands the baptismal font from the 1200s. The pulpit is from 1953 after the older model. On it is a figure with hourglass, measure it out our time on earth or sermon length? The northern part is an altar-pulpit from the 1800s. I turn off my candle and go out in the cemetery. In the churchyard are some older gravestones.
