These photos are the first in a series I'll be posting. Seeing how this trip was, in some ways, a spiritual adventure, I think it is fitting to start with the Churches we visited in and around Reykjavik.
|The Basilica of Christ the King at dawn (9:30AM)|
|The Sanctuary of Christ the King|
|Skalholt Cathedral, played a significant role in |
Icelandic religious history. Once the site of Catholicism, it is now
part of the Church of Iceland (Lutheran).
|The Sanctuary of Shklholt Cathedral was very peaceful.|
|This image of Christ is a mosaic of colored tiles.|
|Hallgrimskikha Cathedral stands high above all in Reykjavik. |
You will see it from where ever you are.
|Lifer Eiricsson Stands outside of Hallgrimskikha Cathedral. |
This statue was a gift from the USA to Iceland.
|Facing the alter inside Hallgrimskikha Cathedral.|
|Looking towards the back of the Hallgrimskikha Cathedral|
with the pipes of the organ looming over the entrance.
|The Alter of Hallgrimskikja Cathedral|
|These pipes could fill Reykjavic with music.|
Next trip I have to hear them!
