  • A beautiful church that is truly a moving experience to visit. The grass hut exhibit outside is a neat walk through as well.  more »
  • We went and it was ok but it's not a place you stay long unless your into Churches or excavations. 15 mins should do.  more »
  • 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.
  • This is a very nice cathedral in one of Iceland's most important historic sites. It seems to be located in the middle of nowhere (similar to almost anywhere in Iceland). Beautiful landscapes around here.
  • Attractive church with beautiful scenery. Not lifechanging as a tourist attraction, but still nice.
  • Beautiful and peaceful place.
  • GG nice place
