  • Nice church. When I entered it, there was a man and woman singing beautiful songs. It was highly appreciated. There is a reproduction of a Icelandic historical church next to it that is worth checking...  more »
  • Former Bishop seat with interesting history. Great church with insanely colourful Windows, although it was all rainy and gray, as we were there. You can rotate a little round well.

  • It's not just the cathedral that is beautiful, with its style quite pure and modern, next to a little house covered in grass (hobbits?), but it's also the view. It's a good place to relx, take a break...  more »

  • The cathedral isn't all that exciting to look at from the outside, but the interior is beautiful. There is also a more traditional structure next door. The views from the cathedral steps are good too.
  • What a wonderful and modest church, archeological site and village. The entrance to the Museum inside the church has a box asking you to contribute to it with cash (300 kr/p as far as I remember) which I recommend. When we went there today (2017/01/18) there was no one in sight, inside nor outside, but some postcards available in the entrance hall of the church as well, with the same honor system of the cash box (100kr/card I believe). There is a very cute (and opened!) Viking looking house on the left of the church that is very picturesque too. The bathroom is in another building, which also asks for donations as you enter and use it. All in all and besides all these donation boxes, this place is very beautiful and has a very intense (and important I believe) place in the history and religion history of Iceland. I highly recommend it!
  • Serene and sublime. This place is quite overlooked but the spiritual home offers respite and peace to those who seek
  • I do not know if it it contributed that it was such excellent weather at the time, but seeing this in the middle of nowhere was rewarding
  • A nice Cathedral with an interesting history which is well laid out for visitors. Make sure you don't go in the main entrance but round to the right where you'll find the historic underground entrance leading you through the exhibit underneath the building.
