Similar to the majestic water fountain spectacle at the Bellagio in Vegas, the Iceland Hallgrímskirkja church gives an equally entertaining light show for the innocent passerby.

Church and cathedrals have historically been architectural masterpieces, but sometimes renovations or a revamping of its look will be beneficial to keep the structure relevant or to hold the interest of youth. The Hallgrímskirkja church underwent just that as the Spanish architect Marcos Zotes installed this fantastic light show on the face of the building for the Winter Light Festival. With a range of hues, kaleidoscope patterns and bone-chilling images projected on the face of the structure, the area is instantly future-forward.

With light displays becoming increasingly common decoration options, skylines will no longer be defined as structurally diverse, but also boast a 3rd dimension of beauty. Stats for Shimmering Sacred Sanctuaries Trending: Older & Mild
