Geocache Description:

Mariakirken er en langkirke fra 1180 og er den eldste bevarte bygningen i Bergen. Den ligger bak den nordligste delen av Bryggen som brant ned til grunnen i 1955. Kirken var i lange tider bedre kjent under navnet Tyskekirken. Kirken er hovedsakelig bygd av kleberstein. Det er identifisert fem ulike typer kleberstein i Mariakirkens originale murverk. Klebersteinsbruddet Urda på Bømlo har levert to typer kleber. Lyse klebersteinsbrudd har levert mye stein og noe fra Hana i Vaksdal. Kirken har 310 sitteplasser.

Kirken er nå stengt pga. restaureringsarbeid frem til 2015
