Stavanger Cathedral (Norwegian: Stavanger domkirke) is Norway's oldest cathedral and the seat of the Bishop of Stavanger who leads the Diocese of Stavanger in the Church of Norway. It is located in the centre of the city of Stavanger which lies in the southwestern part of the large Stavanger Municipality in central Rogaland county, Norway. The church is situated in the centre of the city, in the borough of Storhaug between Breiavatnet in the south, the square with Vågen in the north west, the cathedral square in the north, and Kongsgård in the southwest.
It is one of the two churches for the Domkirken og St. Petri parish which is part of the Stavanger domprosti (arch-deanery) in the Diocese of Stavanger. The gray, stone church was built in a long church style around the year 1125 using designs by an unknown architect. The church seats about 800 people.

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.

Very interesting walkthrough. Facade is under construction, but inside is complete. Interesting mix of Roman and gothic architecture.

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

Impressive and holy space.

The Cathedral is nice just that it is now under upgrading. The front facade is over up. Upgrading will be done by 2019. Overall it is a simple cathedral with its own charm.

It's 50 krone to get in, but it is beautiful conserved. An interesting place to visit.

Norways oldest Cathedral built around 1100. Located near the city center and harbour. Must see.

Interesting for not being a gothic church, but it's not worth the 5 euro ticket.

Very nice architecture and design inside and out.

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.
