About
This Delightful Structure rests in this small village nestled in the village. Built in the mid 16th century is worth a visit to take you to a time gone by. The Church only holds about 250.

This new church is just about 10 minutes walk from the port. With the snowy mountain peak as a backdrop it is chocolate box picture perfect. The interior had a bright and morden feel, very welcoming.

The church was not very big, a bit dark but very cosy and charming. The boxed pews were so cute with the antlers at the side. The setting was so peaceful, definitely worth a visit.

There is not a lot to see in Olden, unsurprisingly as it's a small community. Everyone who walks around visits the two community churches, this one being the original and not much used but valued for historical reasons. Certainly worth visiting and it was kind...More
