Exterior wall, 13th/14th century, Aarhus Cathedral, Aarhus, Denmark

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.
