The present church of Vika, probably opened in 1469, has been found in excavations to be the third in order within the same walls. Sometimes during the 1100's a wooden church was erected but later burnt down. In its place a small stone church was built whose walls partially are included in the current rectangular gray stone church. The church has beautiful frescoes from the 1500's.

Under the church floor are many old graves. The church had an earthen floor until 1852. In the churchyard stands a belltower from the 1600's. The belltower supports a very large church bell from 1692 with a weight of four ton.

The cemetery is probably very old. According to preserved documents it was in use in 1623, probably already then for a long time. It has been expanded in both 1880 and 1930.
