Landakotskirkja (Landakot Church)

Landakotskirkja (Landakot Church)
Landakotskirkja (Landakot Church), formally named Basilika Krists konungs (Basilica of Christ the King) in Reykjavik is the Catholic cathedral of Iceland.
It is often referred to as Kristskirkja (Christ's Church).The first Catholic priests to arrive in Iceland after the Reformation were the frenchmen Bernard Bernard and Jean-Baptiste Baudoin. They bought the Landakot farmstead in Reykjavík in the early 19th century and built a small chapel there in 1864. A few years later, a small wooden church was erected by Túngata, close to Landakot.
