  • It is the Catholic Cathedral of all Iceland. Also called Landakot church or Church of Christ the King. It is a neo-Gothic building of Latin cross plant, with transept and apse. The only Tower is part of the main façade and you will find a single door, with a relief of Christ in Majesty in the eardrum. The cubic form of the Tower, which does not end in the classic Gothic needle is characteristic. The interior are the following works of art: sculpture of San Torlak, patron saint of Iceland and holder of the Cathedral together with Christ the King, Virgin Mary with the child Jesus in her arms, figure ancient wood of the Virgin Mary. A small chapel was built in this place in 1864. A few years later, they built a small wooden church. After the first war world, is decided to build a church Gothic and is entrusted the task to the architect Guðjón Samuelsson. Was elevated to basilica minor in 1999 by the Pope John Paul II. It is devoted to Jesus Christ and Saint Torlak, the patron saint of Iceland.
