Mariakirken door

Mariakirken or St. Mary's Church is a postcard stone church in Bergen which dates back to the 12th century. It is said to be the oldest building in Bergen still used for its original purpose. Unfortunately, the church was closed (maybe it was open but we didn't go in) as the church is reputed not just for this ornate doors like the one pictured here but also for its baroque pulpit which was commissioned by the Hanseatic merchants in the middle ages.
