This is “old Stavanger” where you’ll find a 173 white washed houses from the 18th century. This used to be the poorest neighbourhood of Stavanger. The mothers and children used to work in the canning factory and the fathers were out on sea. Why were houses white? Red is the colour of copper, yellow color means you used fish oil to paint your house and if you had something to spend… you painted your house white. Gamla stan is in the city centre.
