Here's a slightly odd example:

The remains of the old cathedral at Gamla Uppsala, Sweden.

This romanesque cathedral was built in the first half of the 1100's. It was the biggest church in Sweden at the time. Less than half of the original church still stands, after a fire around the year 1200 heavily damaged the building. What's left is only the central tower (the tall, rectangular part nearest to the camera) and the chancel.

The remains of the cathedral has been used as a parish church since the new Uppsala cathedral was consecrated in 1273 AD.

Today they church is mostly famous for the pre-viking age (6th century) royal burial mounds that lie in direct proximity to the church. The church is the building behind the barrows.

According to the Icelandic sagas and 11th century sources, Old Uppsala was the primary residence of the semi-legendary royal Ynglinga-family, mentioned in Beowulf. It is also described as the main pagan religious center in Sweden during the viking period.

Another smaller Swedish church, St. Mary's Church in Sigtuna.

This church was built as part of a Dominican monastery in the 1230's. It is built of brick in a transitional style between romanesque and gothic.

After the reformation in 1530, the monastery was torn down, but the church survived as a parish church for the town of Sigtuna.

Frontal facade looks strange because of this transition. It reminds me of some churches from poland from the romantic era, when a lot of architects mixed those styles toghether. Brick makes this association even stronger.
Whats more - It looks like the project had been changed while construction continued - gothic top of the building and the spire has different rythm and angles than the rest.

You can see that the roof of the nave was raised in the 1280's. It's visible as a clear gable-shaped line in the brickwork just above the Romanesque blind arches of the center of the facade.

Lisbon Cathedral

The Patriarchal Cathedral of St. Mary Major (Portuguese: Santa Maria Maior de Lisboa or SÚ de Lisboa) or simply Lisbon Cathedral is a Roman Catholic Cathedral located in Lisbon, Portugal. The oldest church in the city is the see of the Archdiocese of Lisbon. Since the beginning of the construction of the cathedral, in the year 1147, the building has been modified several times and survived many earthquakes. It is nowadays a mix of different architectural styles.

Romanesque
From its first building period (1147 until the first decades of the 13th century), Lisbon cathedral has preserved the West fašade with a rose window (rebuilt from fragments in the 20th century), the main portal, the North lateral portal and the nave of the cathedral. The portals have interesting sculptured capitals with Romanesque motifs. The nave is covered by barrel vaulting and has an upper, arched gallery (triforium). Light gets in through the rose windows of the West fašade and transept, the narrow windows of the lateral aisles of the nave as well as the windows of the lantern tower of the transept. The general plan of the cathedral is very similar to that of the Old Cathedral of Coimbra, which dates from the same period. One of the chapels of the ambulatory has an interesting Romanesque iron gate.

Absolutely wonderful Romanesque church. Shame in a way about the Baroque elements, though of course fine in their own way, but one of the glories about the Romanesque style was its relative simplicity.

Yes and the facade is strangely simple and austere compared with the building.
