  • Love the vibes it gives off
  • Loved this place which I literally ran through on an exploration of Reykjavik. Haunting in its vistas, yet with a calming ambience under cupreous skies. There are some famous graves of course, but the forest-like nature of paths and stone makes it a very Secret Garden. Not really mentioned as a tourist spot but if you are in town go spend a quiet hour. You will enjoy the solitude.
