This Cathedral is in my opinion more interesting from the outside than inside. There are some stairs and some trees which give more attraction to this church. Moreover, there are a lot of people who meet in this place. The view it's also not bad.

The interior of this cathedral is to die for. Don't miss out on seeing it from the inside. I could have spent hours in here photographing it!

The Torshavn Cathedral church is very old, and the second oldest church in the Faroe islands. The cathedral church lies in the north of the peninsula Tinganes and is one of the main attractions of the town.

This is a very small cathedral that you could miss if you weren't careful and that would be a mistake. It is a haven of tranquility and has interesting decor inside including a higher balcony, beautiful chandeliers and some boats hanging from the ceiling. It...More
