Churches come in all shapes and sizes. This is the church at Núpsstaður, one of the smallest churches in Iceland and perhaps in the world. It is a turf church made like the old Icelandic traditional farmhouses. A little less spectacular than the Sagrada Família in Barcelona.
This tiny chapel is a valuable heritage and became Iceland’s first building to be protected by law in 1930.
The old buildings of Núpsstaður are listed tentative – UNESCO World Heritage Site, see: The Turf House Tradition
