Informazioni su Hvalneskirkja

 

Hvalneskirkja is a beautiful stone church in Hvalnes on the Reykjanes peninsula, built in the years 1886-87.

The church's altarpiece is a remake of the one at Domkirkjan, Iceland's main Lutherian church, and painted in 1886. One of the Hvaleyrarkirkja's main relics is the tombstone of Steinunn Hallgrimsdottir (d. 1649), daughter of the major hymn poet and priest Hallgrimur Petursson (wherefrom Hallgrimskirkja in Reykjavik derives its name). Hallgrimur himself served in Hvalsnes for a number of years.
