Only the walls of the church are standing, and from them plaster and ornament have long since disappeared, revealing the excellent craftsmanship of the builders. This is your chance to see the Faroe Islands in winter and explore the historic village Kirkjubøur and the oldest part of Tórshavn. Add the tour to your cart.
