Although it's the Cathedral of Our Lady, it's actually a cathedral of the Church of Norway. It's the only Norwegian cathedral built entirely of wood and is probably the northernmost Protestant cathedral in the world. Tromso owns an impressive list of "northernmost things." It's a few hundred meters north of the Lutheran Cathedral.
