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.

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.

Stunning building full of history. Situated at the top of a busy street and if you time it right you might get to hear the organ being played.
