The first modern church in Torshavn. Inside its very beautiful, and peaceful. The church organ sounds good.

I've never been inside, but from the outside it's so beautiful. Every time I'm on the Faroe Islands I drive by and next time I have to go inside an see if it's just a beautiful on the inside.

I was just wandering around town, and this building seemed like a beacon up on the hill. I walked in and it was quite nice inside, very modern church. The organ loft is worth a look as well. Nice view over the city.

A wonderful new building in the west of town. Completed in 1965, this magnificent church has a presence all over the town.

Apparently, there was some debate over whether this should have been Torshavn's cathedral. Quite striking design. Different from both sides. There was a wedding being held there when we walked past. Small park opposite with places to sit.

The architecture is interesting, more from a distance than nearby. it is the largest church around. It seemed to be a pyramid but only the rook is so.
