A nice church
Nothing special
I just went in for a couple of minutes
It does look impressive
But I’ve seen better
Walking distance from downtown Reykjavík

A must visit while in Reykjavik. A beautiful church in the heart of Reykjavik that terminates the end of one of the quaint shopping and cafe streets (Skólavörðustígur). For a little extra you can climb the bell tower and take in views of Reykjavik.

Great vantage point to see the city. U fortunately we missed both masses on Easter Sunday. Regardless we stood outside and enjoyed the area. I imagine the mass was an amazing experience. All nationalities were present. Very friendly crowd.

Great stop. We didn’t go the top because the line was super long - we just looked in for a few minutes and kept going, but it is definitely worth a look. FYI - there are no public bathrooms.
