Roskilde Cathedral (Roskilde Domkirke) was the first Gothic cathedral constructed of brick, a style which spread throughout Northern Europe. The building was built in the 12th and 13th centuries. The Cathedral has been the last resting place of Danish monarchs since the 15th century.
Originally a Romanesque basilica, Aarhus Cathedral was started in the last decades of the 12th Century, was partially destroyed by a fire in 1330, and enlarged into its present form as a Gothic cathedral between 1450 and 1520. The outer walls and the chapels along the eastern wall of the transept are the only surviving Romanesque elements. The cathedral is dedicated to St. Clement. It is the longest and tallest church in Denmark.
