To the North is a place you could wear on your feet
To the South is a place that could mean alone
To the West they play a ba' game in the street
To the East is where Hallvard sits on his throne

I've been a tall and proud trio for three decades and a half.
Where and what am I?

Partial: I think you are somewhere in :

Norway or North sea

Explaination:

To the West they play a ba' game in the street - BA game is a version of medieval football played in Scotland, primarily in Orkney and the Scottish Borders, around Christmas and New Year.
To the East is where Hallvard sits on his throne - Hallvard Kirke Norway
To the South is a place that could mean alone - sola - Sola is a municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. it mean Alone in Spanish
Sandal is also a place in Norway, just to the north from Sola.

The part between these places is

Norway or North sea

Damn I found it:

I've been a tall and proud trio for three decades and a half.
It's in Stavanger: Sverd i fjell - The monument was created by sculptor Fritz Røed from Bryne and was unveiled by King Olav V of Norway in 1983. The three bronze swords stand 10 metres (33 ft) tall and are planted into the rock of a small hill next to the fjord.
