Originally built in the 1790's and expanded in the 1840’s, this small but very well maintained Cathedral is adjacent to the parliament building and is well worth a quick visit. Its centrepiece is a 19th century lovely baptismal font directly in front of the main...More

Reykjavik's premier architect designed this cathedral modeled after typical geological formations found on the coastal cliffs. The pipe organ is World Class and worth attending the free concerts.

We visit a lot of churches around the world and this one is not overly ornate, has a great location, and is peaceful.

We walked into the Church to view the beautiful interior. It’s not much to look at on the exterior but nice on the inside. Right on the edge of old town.

A very small church near the Parliament building. Mo tall tower unlike Hallgrimskirkja or the catholic cathedral. Whitewashed walls outside. Inside a beautiful old church with a lovely pulpit.

Free Bach concert at 5:30 Tuesday nights. Piano in a small, golden church. It was a magical experience that was all too short.

This church is good for a quick visit, but isn't nearly as impressive as the big church on the hill. We found out too late there is a free Bach concert every Tuesday evening, which we would have enjoyed.
