One of the first landmarks you'll notice in the distance when you get off your bus or ferry is the copper dome of the Vesturkirkja. The church is quite new, completed in 1975. While the outside is quite impressive, it's also very interesting to see the inside, with its grey-white altar and beautiful organ pipes. The church is open to visitors Monday - Saturday 3PM - 5PM during the summer, shorter hours off-season.

Address: Landavegur, Tórshavn
Directions: From the town hall, head west on Grims Kambans Gøta until it runs into Landavegur. Continue towards the pointed dome of the church.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
