Keldur, Iceland oldest house

North of the villages of Hella and Hvolsvöllur is the ancient farm of Keldur. The farm is mentioned in several of the Icelandic Sagas written in the 13th century, including Njál’s Saga. It is located by a natural spa at the edge of a lava field – where water just seemingly incredibly from no-where seeps through the rock formations creating a brook. The current church is an ironclad timber church that was built in 1875 and it holds numerous items of historical interest.
