Hike up the hill to Kirkjubour Cathedral, reputedly the largest medieval building on the islands. The 1300 church lacks a roof, which is nothing new: in fact, the building was never completed. Still, poking around here will reveal lots of details about ancient architecture and construction. Pause to take in the views of the rest of the island, as well as other smaller islands nearby.

  • An amazing settlement at an amazing location. Small, rough, pittoresque -and rough again. As with most things Faroese. This place is definately worth a visit while in the islands.

  • Beautiful little church
  • A fairly new church (it was rebuild in the 19th century). Not so spectacular.
