A beautifully maintained cathedral in the heart of Visby, in complete contrast with all the other churches which appear to be in ruin. Dates back to 1190 with a number of alterations since then. Quite Germanic in appearance and this is born out by its original design and construction by German traders. You have to remember the strategic importance of the location of Gotland in the Baltic Sea.

Not very old but nicely designed. It is also important to take pictures there outside the cathedral.

This beautiful landmark is as spectacular outside as inside. Do go around noon when the melodic chimes are active. Against a blue summer sky , the spires and especially magnificent. Inside is intricate art and ornate detail.

A landmark of VIsby, its three towers prominent above the other buildings in the town. Inside is bright and airy and obviously well kept. Of interest is the organ, the high wooden pulpit, chandeliers and the modern stained glass windows.

Visby was an unexpected pleasure on a Holland America cruise. We just walked the area on our own, and had so much fun exploring.

I would say the highlight was the St. Karin cathedral ruins, which has a market square right next to it. In fact, all the ruins were fascination.

But St. Mary`s Cathedral is a nice detour from the various cathedral ruins. We happened upon it during a Sunday service, which made it a bit more special.
