Lovely local cathedral. Interesting architecture and quite photogenic. Worth a visit. We had about 25 minutes here.

The interior is beautiful and quite serene. A true house of worship, in my opinion. Worth a visit while you are in the city.

We visited this church near city hall as we happen to be passing by. The church is pretty in its somewhat austere way. Clearly designed as a house of worship rather than as a museum.

We happened to stop in during choir practice, which was nice. The church is lovely and is just a nice place to stop.

A church you just have to see because of its size and location right in the center of Reykjavik. An amazing building that safeguards the values of the people

Cathedral in the city centre was built in 1796 from stone and the roof is corrugated iron. This was built when Reykjavik was just a collection of farms, warehouses and few town houses. This building overlooks "the pond" which attracts loads of Birdlife and information...More

Both on the central high-point of the city and with a commanding height, the Cathedral stands out from most any point in the city. It has a sweeping look from the outside and the best view of the city from its tower. The simple central...More

Very pretty older church in downtown Reykjavik. It's worth a peek and brief visit inside if you are downtown already. Should only take a few minutes to look around and warm up.
