It is the most beautiful church in Reykjavik. I was married here in 1978, I took my daughter to Sundayschool here for a number of years and she was confirmed her and my father was buried from this church. It is old and has a wonderful history. It's not a big as many of the more modern ones but is has a soul and is a haven for tired people. with it's lovely interiors. I lovel this church and always feel comfortable. (and it is Luteran rather than Catholic, the Catholic church is la little further up, made of dark stone).

Lovely little church. Light and airy. Good to find a church open. Outside Reykjavik most churches are locked (at least when we were there.)

I gave this sight "Very Godd" becuase it is defintely a must-do in Reykjavik. The top of the church has incredible views of the city and is a great picture taking opportunity. However there isnt much else to do there other than that. The church itself is nice but you can walk through it in about 5 minutes.

Great views and I'm glad that I got to visit this because I had time. It is a nice cathedral and the views were great. You should do this early in your visit to really get a sense of the city.
