Skaun Church became a parish church and Olaf Church already in 1180, and was called "Vinjar kirkju" in the Middle Ages.

The building has characteristic features of Romanesque and Gothic style. The front of the altar table is from the early 1200s and the church tower is from 1649.

The marks of the Stonemason indicate that the mason who carved the stone portal also worked on the octagon in Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim.

The pilgrim milestone is to be found on the same site.
