Dating mainly from the 18th and early 19th centuries, these Stavanger homes characterize the architectural style that once existed nationwide. The cobbled streets wind between whitewashed historical homes, numbering 173 in all. Discover the multitude of craft stores and shops that now give life to the area. Be sure to stop by the local canning museum, which demonstrates the inner workings of a typical factory in the neighborhood at the dawn of the 20th century.
