"Kirkbøur" Tórshavn Off The Beaten Path Tip by jonkb
Tórshavn Off The Beaten Path: 5 reviews and 12 photos
Kirkbøur is the place for the historically interested on the Faroe Islands. Not that it's of the beaten path: Almost everyone that visit the Islands come here, but it's some four hours walking from Tórshavn.
Kong Siggurd (of Norway) was here, and used the cathedral. The cathedral is now only a ruin, but you still get a feel of the place. You can also visit the wooden church here and perhaps the other houses belonging to the family who has lived here for generations.
