Domkirkjan holds a significant importance in shaping Icelandic history. Interestingly the church has always been on the site since 1200 AD only to have taken its present form in 1796. This the very place where Iceland’s independence was officially endorsed and the members of cabinet still gather for several sessions.
The first view at the church will fill you with serenity, a fairly basic building amongst the perfectly manicured green lawn. On entering the church one will experience the same sense of calmness around. The church also houses a baptismal font donated by famous sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen.
