Inside Tórshavn Cathedral, Faroe Islands

Tórshavner Cathedral is the second oldest received church of the Faroe Islands, on Tinganes in the old town of Tórshavn. Painted white and roofed with slate, it was established in 1788. The cathedral lies in the north of the peninsula Tinganes and is one of the main attractions of the town. Like most churches of the country, it belongs to the Evangelical-Lutheran national church of the Faroe Islands. Since 1990 it has been the seat of the bishop of the Faroes and is therefore known as a cathedral.

 

What struck us with this church was its simplicity, but strikingly blue ceiling.
