This church is unique outside and so beautiful inside. There are quiet corners where one can meditate and pray. I loved the small prayer space tucked in the corner of the sanctuary. The pipes for the pipe organ are magnificent. I would have loved to hear the organ being played, but arrived to late on Sunday to attend a service.

clearly a special architecture. View from the top is great ($), even on cloudy day. Inside of the church is very sober

Loved soaking in the culture of Iceland by walking through this cathedral. We took the elevator to top and got to see all the different colored houses that is unique to the area. It was the cheapest thing we got to do while there since Iceland is known for high prices.

My husband and I arrived at this church just before 9 to hear the bells ringing and one of the first if the day to catch the lift to the tower for spectacular views...except it was raining which blurred the view a little. A charge is made to visit the tower. An interesting church. Make sure you spot the only stained glass window at the back on the left! Worth visiting!
