Hallgrímskirkja 'Church of Hallgrímur' is the largest church in Iceland, standing 73m high and taking 38 years to build, being completed in 1986. It is named after Hallgrímur Pétursson, a poet from the 1600s. The structure is inspired by basalt columns, which can be found in several places on the Icelandic coast.
