This is a pretty square between the harbor and the cathedral with some vendors and an interesting sculpture. Atop a tall column is a metal sculpture that our guide told us was a shrimp. I think you have to use your imagination.

It used to be a market square, now it is notting. It is cold and windy (wind from north) and usually empty. In peak season you can experience awful white tents, offering "china" souvenirs you really don't wan't to buy.

When walking around Stavanger you will most likely come across this lovely harbour spot. Great views across the water and the ships are tied up closely, great coastal atmosphere. Great photo ops as well.
