One of the last Icelandic peat churches
This church is located in the town of Hof in the south-east Iceland. It is built using a technique which was used earlier in the Iron Age. In order to protect themselves and their livestock from the harsh climate, the settlers built houses and stalls using the rock as the walls and peat turf for sealing and insulation of the roof. It is one of 6 churches that were built using this old technology.
