Stavanger Cathedral Overview
Located in the centre of the city, the Stavanger Cathedral is one of the oldest and most famous places to visit in Stavanger Norway. Built in the 12th century by Bishop Reinald, the cathedral was an erstwhile Romanesque basilica. It suffered a fire in 1272, after which its choir was rebuilt in the Gothic style of architecture. However, the entire cathedral was renovated in the early 19th century.

The interiors of the church boast of a magnificent Baroque pulpit, in addition to a stone front from the Gothic period. Furthermore, the church also has stained glass in its eastern windows, which depict scenes from the New Testament. You can also find the former Bishop’s Palace behind the cathedral, which overlooks the northern shore of the small Breiavatnet lake. The cathedral is also one of the best-preserved cathedrals in all of Norway.
