19th Century Turf-Roofed Church in Iceland

The charming Hofskirkja Church was built in Öræfi, Iceland in 1884 by Páll Pálsson and Þorsteinn Gissurarson.  It was the last turf church built in the old style and is one of six churches still standing which are preserved as historical monuments.

The church is maintained by the National Museum but also serves as a parish church.Via
