This church is visible from our room in the Hotel Selfoss. The simple but unique steeple really made the church special. It really stood out as part of our view. Unfortunately, we weren't able to visit the interior.

we stumbled upon this church on our evening walk and the area around was really pretty especially around sunset. Behind it was a small cemetery and next to it was a river with lots of thermal area. So quiet and peaceful and lots of reflection...More
