Until 1819 was St. Olav's church Elsinore only parish church. In Elsinore were in Catholic time three monasteries, all from the period 1420-30.

After the Reformation, was preserved of these only Our Lady Monastery (Carmelite Monastery) whose church, Sct. Marie church in 1577 was converted into a German church for foreigners in the city.

In 1819 shared Skt. Olav parish in two and Sct. Mary church became the city's second parish church.

In 1958 Vestervang parish was separated as the third parish, and later came Sthens Church as the city's fourth parish.

St. Olav's Church, Elsinore Cathedral as it stands now, was completed in 1559, but its history goes back to the 1200s, when it had the size of a small Romanesque village church.

In the intervening period, alterations and additions to what St. Olav's Church is today.

In connection with the major renovation of St.. Olav's Church in the time 2000-2001, a number of the inner tombs were opened, and about 50 coffins were photographed and part was examined more closely by Elsinore City Museum.
