This church is magnificent. The architecture is a replica of the rocks at the black beach. The view from the tower was unbelievable. Don’t miss seeing it.

Nice big modern church in the Icelandic tradition of simplicity.
Visit to the top of the Tower is by lift (thankfully) and costs 1000 Kr each (about £7) where you can enjoy a 360 view of the City - well worth a visit.
Also outside the Church there was a Brass Band playing and a display of American Cars that made for an enjoyable atmosphere.

Testimony to what you can do with concrete. Inside has a stark, beautiful simplicity. Wait to take the elevator up the tower was very short. We caught a children's choir rehearsal in progress which sounded lovely.

Amazing views of a lovely, historic site. You can see the sea and explore the past while feasting your eyes on an amazing piece of art.
