Hallgrímskirkja is Named as One of the Top 10 Places for Reflection
Hallgrímskirkja is named as one of the top 10 places for reflection in an article by the Guardian.
The church is the largest church in Iceland and the sixth tallest structure in Iceland, standing at 73 metres. The Architect Guðjón Samúelsson designed the church to resemble the basalt lava flows in Iceland´s landscape. The church´s bare interior is dramatic with a vaulted ceiling which casts shadows on the bare walls. The organ is 15 metres tall and weighs 25 tons and presides like a last judgement inside the church.
The church is named after the 17th-century clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson, author of a famous series of Passion hymns composed for Lent.
