Admire the architectural landmark of Vesturkirkjan Church, whose stark, angular design stands out as a singularity on the Faroe Islands. A large glass-panel facade lets in light to the interior, where you can climb to the upstairs gallery and take in the whole of the structure. Note the unusual organ and modern lighting fixtures, which complement the overall spare yet elegant aesthetic. Do check the opening hours before you go, as the church has limited visiting times.

Beautiful place, lovely public garden and the steeple is a sight to behold. Always impresses.
