The quaint yet stunning Stavanger Cathedral is oldest in Norway and sits pretty peacefully in the heart of Stavanger. The construction of this Cathedral began around 1100 but was completed in 1125.
The gothic styled cathedral is hugely influenced by Anglo-Norman architecture. The stone structure with wooden carvings with stained glass paintings is a piece of paradise for Art lovers.
If you are lucky, you may be able to witness a marriage procession here. The verdant lush lawns around the Cathedral make it a stunning visual treat. There are many religious addresses and gatherings that take place here regularly. It is a well maintained structure and must be visited whether you are a devout or someone who digs in the history and culture of a place.
- There is still some restoration work going on some sections and therefore there could be stone falling hazard.
- It is a church so dress and behave accordingly keeping in mind the sentiments of those around you.

I always love going to these places as I travel. They tell a story about the history of the people that settled there and the art and sculptures are just fantastic. The people were extremely friendly as well.
An impressive if simple structure of considerable age. Well sited on raised ground by a fine lake. A small entry charge.
It's amazing, even under wraps.
Interesting place. Lots of history. Lots of renovations at the moment
Very cool and old architecture
