On the site of the old temple, a cathedral was erected which, however, was burnt down in 1245. The erection of a new cathedral was initiated at a place called "Oestra Aros". Construction began around 1260, consecration took place in 1435 after 175 years of work. Now the Largest church in Scandinavia. The visit to this old Cathedral is a Must !
