The city of Aberdeen has several important churches that many guide books referred to as cathedrals. The old church of St. Nicholas is one of them. The first remains of the church that were found here date back to the 12th Century, although it is quite possible that the foundations were built much earlier. Its name is due to a miracle performed by Saint Nicholas who saved sailors from certain death during the storm. Historically, it was one of the largest religious centers and had an important impact in medieval times. There are several tombs and some other decorative items, mainly located in the interior.
