Vopnafjarðarkirkja

Vopnfjarðarkirkja church was built in 1903 and is now a historic building. Until that year, there was no church in the village, but there were churches at Refstaður and Hof (both in Hofsárdalur valley). 

The altarpiece in Vopnafjarðarkirkja was painted by Jóhannes Kjarval and is called „Savior talks to the people.“ When bishop Jón Helgason visited the church he is supposed to have said that the people in the painting look like deamons in hell. However, he supposedly added that they seemed to be listening closely to Christ nevertheless.
