The Þingvallakirkja, an Icelandic term which literally means "Church of the Parliament Plains" or "Church of Þingvellir", is a small church whose present building dates from 1859, but the first building was constructed on the initiative of the Norwegian King Olaf I at the time of Iceland's conversion to Christianity around the year 1000.

The Łańcut synagogue, built in 1761 on the site of a former wooden synagogue, is one of the most valuable monuments of Jewish religious architecture in Poland. Restored in the 19th century, the synagogue was burned down during the Second World War, destroying most of its interior. Rescued in extremis from demolition in the 1950s, the synagogue was restored in 1960 and is now used as a Jewish museum.
