Stavanger Cathedral is Norway’s oldest cathedral. It is located in the center of Stavanger, between the City Square (Torget) and the beautiful lake Breiavatnet. Today it is the seat of the Bishop of Stavanger. The cathedral officialy dates back to year 1125, but was built over a period of almost 50 years from about 1100. It was built in a long church style where gray stone was the main building material. In the beginning it was partly made by wood and destroyed in a fire in 1272 and later rebuilt in a gothic style. It has been renovated several times during the last centuries, a major restoration in the 1860, then from 1930 to 1960 and in 1999. A new major restoration was started in 2013 and is expected to be finished in time for Stavanger’s 900 year jubileum as a city in 2025. The church seats about 800 visitors.
