Þorgeirskirkja at Ljósavatn is a church built in commemoration of Iceland’s choice to become a Christian nation. The church was built in 2000, celebrating 1000 years of Christianity. Open to the public in summer. Goðafoss is the waterfall into which Þorgeir threw his heathen gods as a symbolic act of dispensing with heathenism.
