The first stone buildings in Iceland were eight
fine official edifices constructed by the
goverment in 1753-77: four residences for
officials, and four churches. Designed by
Denmarkïs leading court architects, they combine
simplicity with elegance. The oldest is Viðey
House, built for Tresurer Skúli Magnússon in
1753, followed by Hólar Cathedral in 1757, Nes
House was built for the Director of Public
Health, and Bessastaðir House for the Governor,
both in 1761. The jail in Reykjavík (now
Goverment House) was built in 1765, and finally
three churches: on Viðey island in 1766, in the
Westman Islands (Lönd church) in 1774 and at
Bessastaðir in 1777. All these historic
structures remain in use, as splendid as ever.
