Kirkjubour Overview

Kirkjubour was once the principal settlement in the Faroes - unclear why as Torshavn, the current capital, has a far better anchorage, It was at Kirkjubour that the building of the Magnus Cathedral was started - but never finished - and where the small church served as the Islands Cahedral for centuries.

Other than these, the main attraction today is the excellent museum, which occupies half of a working farmhouse.

It is possible to walk round the cliffs from Torshavn or to go by road.
