  Thingvallakirkja and Thingvallabaer
by bpwillet

These buildings were once a part of the original farm of Thorir Kroppinskeggi that was purchased by the Althing in the 900's. The current buildings were built in the 1930's and are now used as a summer home of the prime minister. The church is just outside the ruins of an original 11th century church on the same grounds. Archeaologists have uncovered many other settlement areas around this location.
