About Stavanger Cathedral, Stavanger

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.

  • Beautiful, historic church, nicely preserved. Much nicer inside than out - so I was told. I could have commented on that if they posted visiting hours. Many disappointed visitors were wondering if/when they would open up at all in the near future. Oh well .... Scandinavian countries don't really care about visitors.

  • More impressive inside that it is outside. Norway's oldest cathedral (not including the stave churches). Free for kids 12 and under.

  • Beautiful early medieval church!

  • Beautiful cathedral, not very impressive, but worth seeing it.

  • A beautiful and very very very old cathedral. Must stop in stavanger. Tours available.
