"a little religious drama!" Kirkjubæjarklaustur Things to Do Tip by smirnofforiginal

Kirkjubæjarklaustur Things to Do: 11 reviews and 35 photos


Two nuns were executed and buried here because they slept with the devil!

Also, the church (Steingrímsson Memorial Church) commemorates a sermon in 1783 which saved the town from the lava that spewed from Laki... the lava stopped just before it could hit and destroy the town... lucky!
