Viborg Cathedral, Denmark

The original Norman-Romanesque cathedral was built in the 12th century. This is its reconstructed version, built between 1864-76.  Inside the cathedral are the frescoes of painter Joakim Skovgaard, depicting the biblical accounts from creation through to the risen, ascended and enthroned Christ. Check out the other participant’s photos here.
