To all the people who told me that I’d love the Alhambra: Yes, you were 100% right.
According to what they say in Iceland, Hallgrimskirkja Church which sits at the top of Skolavordustigur Street(really difficult to pronounce 🙄), the central art and design shopping street in the capital is one of the two buildings which will be visible even after the country has immersed in water once the glacier melts.PERLAN being the second one(NEXT POST). The iconic building is 74,5 meters (240 ft) high, and a visit to the top will reward you with awe-inspiring views of Reykjavik and even Snaefellsjokull glacier on a clear day(we went on a rainy day). For a modest fee visitors can enter the church tower and enjoy the majestic view. Completed in 1986, the concrete structure took over 40 years to build. The tower was renovated in 2009. The soaring modernist church was designed to resemble the basalt lava flows found in Iceland’s natural landscape, especially the basalt columns around Svartifoss waterfall.
Hallgrimskirkja Church is open every day 9-21 from May to September, and 9-17 from October to April. The church tower, from which you get an excellent view over Reykjavik and surrounding areas, closes half an hour before the general closing time. It is also closed on Sundays during mass.
Adults pay an entrance fee of 900 ISK for access to the tower. Children aged 7-14 pay 100 ISK.
