Nidaros Cathedral and Archbishop’s Palace:
Nidaros Cathedral (Norwegian: Nidarosdomen) is the world’s northernmost medieval cathedral and Norway’s national sanctuary. The Cathedral is the grave church of St. Olav, the patron Saint of Norway. In addition to it now being one of Europe’s major historical pilgrim destinations, coronations and royal blessings take place in the church. Together with Nidaros Cathedral, the Archbishop’s Palace play a central role in Norway’s history. The building of the cathedral started in the second half of the 12th century and is today one of the best-preserved buildings of its kind in Europe. The Archbishop’s Palace has been both the residence of the most powerful men in Norway and a military installation.
