Very big breathtaking church in the middle of town. Very plain on the inside. Must buy a ticket, $10 USD to get to the top for great views of the city. Check it out.

We didn't get to see the inside due to a funeral, but it was very nice to see on the outside. Bring a camera, and take your time exploring the church. Lots of shops & restaurants across the street.

First just admired this stunning church from outside, but later went inside and up to the tower. It costs 1000 kr to get up there but the 360 degrees view is really worth it.

This stunningly designed church dominates the city. It’s sharp line catches the morning and evening light. Loved the basalt like concrete columns on the facade. Inside it has a restful simplicity

one of our first stop when we arrived in Iceland. Nice iconic landmark building. the organ inside the church is pretty impressive. you had to pay to go to the top of the church to see the view of town though. great as a pit stop when touring around the city. 5 min from the main street
