Olav’s Church in Tønsberg was a round church that belonged to the Olav Abbey in Tunsberghus/Tønsberg. The church is mentioned for the first time in 1206. It was destroyed in fire, probably during the great city fire in 1536. The bagger/bagler-king Erling Steinvegg/stonewall was buried in Olav Church when he died in 1207. This building is the only round church in Norway, and the largest in the Nordic region. When it was built, at the end of the 1100s, it should be a copy of the Holy Sepulcher's Church in Jerusalem.
