A beautiful church from the 17th century
Dec 2019
I can’t be otherwise than highly amused about people who call it “ordinary” or who complain about the church being closed. Faroe Islands can have monumental churches like France or Italy and people should be aware they come to a minuscule place in the middle of nowhere (which became developed in the past 70 years maybe) and have less expectations of grandeour. And by the way, there is no wonder the churches started being closed, unfortunately the vandalism is not uncommon among tourists, especially in the past few years since their numbers grew. 15years ago this wasn’t an issue.

Dómskirkjan is a beautiful 17th century church, beautifully handcrafted. Something worth visiting actually, if one has the patience to catch it open.

PS. One was complaining about the National Museum being “in another city”, which sounds like people would be forced to travel distances to see it. Which is rather incorrect, as it is in Hoyvík, which is part of the Tórshavn municipality and it is adiacent to the main town.

Very Pretty

Worth seeing if you're searching the middle of town. It's not everyday that you see a cathedral completely made out of wood

Beautifully restored and very much part of the nation's history. Fine gardens over the wall and a lovely part of town to wander around in.

A MUST SEE IN TORSHAVN!
Jul 2019
We were greeted by a friendly volunteer at the church who explained the history. Don't miss the models of ships lost at see which are hung from the ceiling. Simply beautiful.

High on a hill overlooking the harbour area.

Well worth a stop to explore the church & grounds on a self guided walking tour of the harbour area. Allow 30 minutes to look around.

Walking around town you will probably find the cathedral. I only managed to see it from outside as it was closed every time I walked by.

Interesting Bell Tune
Oct 2018 • Family
I visited the Cathedral a couple of times on my visit. Both times (once at 10:00am (I think) and once at 6:00pm) the bells were chiming and they also do a tune afterwards which was great to hear. The church was closed so I didn’t get to see inside. Really easy to get to from the harbour, and from the centre of town.
