Nnidaro Cathedral

Nidaros Cathedral (or Nidaros Cathedral) is the most monumental medieval building in Scandinavia. Construction began in 1070 over the final resting place of King Olaf II. The original construction lasted 230 years and was substantially completed in 1300. However, it did not last long and there were further constructions and reconstructions basically all the time until today. The last significant changes date back to 2001.

Nidaros Cathedral is the destination of the pilgrimage of St. Olaf, the most important pilgrimage route in Scandinavia. And while in earlier times pilgrimages were religious in nature, nowadays people go on pilgrimages for all sorts of reasons.
