Churches

Walking and driving around in the Faroe Islands, you will find that practically every village has a church.

The oldest one still in use is the 13th century St. Olav’s church in Kirkjubøur.

Today, eighty percent of the Faroese population are members of the Lutheran Church.

The churches still do play a vital role in Faroese society today and houses most weddings, funerals and Christmas celebrations.
