The Hofskirkja Church - Iceland's Only Church With A Grass Rooftop

The Hofskirkja Church is the last grass roof church standing in Iceland. The Church was built in 1884. Its pointed roof stretches all the way down to the ground. The roof was built using stone slabs and covered with grass.

This was an usual style of Icelandic architecture; one of the best methods of keeping the warmth inside during winter. This way, the Hofskirkja church was a warm place for its visitors.
