Trip Planner: Europe / Norway / Central Norway / Trondelag / Trondheim Municipality / Trondheim / Nidaros Cathedral
Home of the grave of Norway's patron saint, Nidaros Cathedral stands as one of the country's most important religious sites and one of the largest medieval buildings in Scandinavia. Original construction started in 1070 over the resting place of Saint Olaf, and the church took on elements of both Gothic and Romanesque architecture over the centuries. Stop by the sizable cathedral to admire its dual bell towers and intricate facade, replete with arches, windows, and pillars. Explore the vaulted interior and its large stained-glass window section. Don't miss the crypt, which contains a multitude of medieval-era headstones found within the church. Before you visit Trondheim, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

First time for me visiting "domen". I recommend taking a peek into the catacombs and make sure you visit the museum. The ground floor is a little dark and uninteresting, but downstairs you'll find an old mint.
