This is a very old chuch that is still used but in pristine condition. In fact the day of my visit there was a woman washing all of the floors, and she cares so much for it's appearance.

It's a fine example of a fairly modest church one would find in any small country. Not one of those overly gold laden monstrous Cathedrals.

It's easy to think the huge hallgrimskirkja must be a cathedral, but the real cathedral is this tiny one - not any bigger than many a parish church. But it's pretty and well proportioned. You'll be bound to walk past it at some point so take a moment to go inside.

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.)
