Show sight on map

Visby Cathedral, formally Visby Saint Mary's Cathedral is a cathedral within the Church of Sweden, seat of the Bishop of Visby. It lies in the centre of Visby, the main town on the Swedish island Gotland. It was built as the church of the German traders in the city during the 13th century. The very first church was probably a wooden church, which was later replaced by a stone building. Originally built as a basilica, it was successively expanded and rebuilt during the Middle Ages. At the end of this period it had been transformed to a hall church, which it still is. In 1361, Gotland and the church became part of Denmark. Following the Reformation, it was the only medieval church in the city left in use, and in 1572 raised to the status of cathedral. Since 1645 Gotland and the cathedral have been part of Sweden. A major renovation was carried out in 1899–1903 under the guidance of architect Axel Haig.

He and he are two churches built in St. Visby, Gotland. The present standing church was erected in the 13th century and consecrated to John the Preacher and Peter the Apostle. His oldest saint is probably the first stone church to be built on Gothic soil, on the ruins of the former pagan Viet (site of sacrifice). This happened around 1060, when Christians challenged and expelled ancient believers, and the church was unlikely to be replaced by pagan temples.
