Skálholt Cathedral
This significant cultural and historical site was once the wealthiest and most populated places in Iceland. Skálholt was one of the two episcopal seats in Iceland and was the centre of ecclesiastic power in Iceland for almost 8 centuries. Today, you can visit to see the new cathedral, the sarcophagus of bishop Páll Jónsson, the museum, and the collection of ancient books in the tower. These will interest those fascinated with history, religion, archaeology, and culture. The cathedral is open every day from 9 am – 6 pm Recommended time: 30 min – 1 hour
