By all means, the Hallgrimskirkja Church/Cathedral is a landmark worth seeing if you’re visiting Reykjavik, Iceland (whether for a long visit or a short visit). It was completed in 1986 (year before my birth), but took 41 years to build and was designed by architect(s), Gudjon Samuelsson and was designed in the “Expressionist” architecture and designed in a way to resemble the basalt lava flows of some of Iceland’s landscapes. It’s a Lutheran Church…
Selfie I took with the Hallgrimskirkja in Reykjavik, Iceland in the background… a popular city landmark worth seeing, and conveniently located in the city centre.

The famous “Hallgrimskirkja” Cathedral/Church in Reykjavik, Iceland from my trip last month… This is the back of the church. This is a must-see attraction.
Hallgrimskirkja is a must-see if you visit Reykjavik, Iceland… which I am now. Not your most typical church/cathedral, which makes it even more worth visiting.
From my March, 2013 trip to France… a shot of Saint Christophe Cathedral… definitely a must-see, both inside & out. It was built between 1725 & 1750 and has been a national monument of France since 1930.
From my March, 2013 trip to France to see relatives… Here’s a church we saw in the suburbs of Belfort (don’t remember the name of the town or village we were in). Can you believe some of these churches took nearly 100 years to build? There’s plenty of similar ones, too!
