Hallgrimskirkja church is Reykjavík’s main landmark and its tower can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. Standing directly in front of the church, and predating it by 15 years, is a statue of Leifur Eiríksson (c. 970 – c. 1020) – the first European to discover America. Records suggest that Leifur landed on the shores of the new world in the year 1,000 A.D., that's 500 years before Christopher Columbus (a little history for all of us).
