Saksun Church, Streymoy

(25+ reviews on the web)
Church Landmark
Standing alone at the end of a village road, Saksun Church looks out over the sea. The design of this site may surprise at first, since it combines religious and nautical elements and symbols. Naturally, this reflects the main trade of the locals--fishing. After your visit to the church, take time to roam around the village, enjoying the view of the sea and mountains. Put Saksun Church into our Streymoy itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
