Hike up the hill to Kirkjubour Cathedral, reputedly the largest medieval building on the islands. The 1300 church lacks a roof, which is nothing new: in fact, the building was never completed. Still, poking around here will reveal lots of details about ancient architecture and construction. Pause to take in the views of the rest of the island, as well as other smaller islands nearby.

Lovely cathedral. Boats hanging from the ceiling. Doors at the end of each pew plus the distinctive balcony stood out for me.
Beautiful small church in the middle of town. Some unique features I hadn't seen for the pew seating. Impressive woodwork and a large organ. It has two ships suspended from the ceiling.
