  • Nice church in a beautiful landscape, and the history of the wine is here too. It is clearly a place that must be seen!

  • We went to the church at Skalholt for one of their summer concerts, including baroque and contemporary music. It was an amazing experience.  more »
  • This area, the church may seem unremarkable, but it is true that the sacred site of Iceland's religion, Sk?lholt, has been the centre of Iceland's religion (political culture) since the seventh century, and in 1056 it was the first Catholic bishop of Iceland, which for hundreds of years, was home to bishops. In 1550, during the Reformation of the Republic of Iceland, the Anglican Church was converted to Lutheranism, and the last Catholic archbishop, J?n Arason, was executed in Skolhott. Traces of religious change in the 16th century are still preserved by today's Icelanders - sister waterfalls, waterfalls, etc. are also testimony to that period of history. Next to the new church, there is an old settlement, and the grass houses are beautiful. Like
