It is known as the Polychrome Cathedral, and is made of several different colours and types of stone, obviously as it has been repaired over the centuries. First built in the eleventh century by the Nordic inhabitants (hence the name) it is well before the more famous Gothic cathedrals: somber, rather dark, but very atmospheric. The sandstone portals ...
