Stavanger Cathedral

Stavanger domkirke, 4005 Stavanger, Norway

This landmark is the only active cathedral in Norway that dates back to the Middle Ages. Originally built in 1122 in the Anglo-Norman style, it was reconstructed with a Gothic chancel after damage from a fire in 1272. It is believed that the arm of its patron saint, St. Svithun, was among the cathedral’s original relics.
