This is a Catholic Cathedral in Reykjavik that was built in 1929. Fairly plain inside and I do like the design and detail outside. Note: you can easily see this cathedral from the top of Hallgrimskirkja.

We encountered this large catholic church when staying relatively close by - it perhaps seems a tad more impressive given that it's in it's own grounds. I am not overly keen on frequenting such but it has to be said that this was an impressive...More

While walking we encountered the Landakotskirkja. Once inside we discovered this was a Catholic church. There were about three people inside, admiring the architecture. It was quite bright inside, probably thanks to the white walls and ceilings. The outside remembers me of a church in...More

By far for me the most beautiful church in Iceland. The gothic feel makes it unique and worth seeing. Inside there are beautiful wooden carved altars and unique statues. The stained glass is plain yet beautifully geometric. If you're a church viewer like me put...More
