Ingjaldshóll, a church, ancient manor farm and the main setting of Víglundar saga.
Often the residence of sheriffs and other important officials.
The church is believed to be the oldest concrete church in the world, built in 1903. A painting in the church by Áki Gränz shows Christopher Columbus conversing with the local clergyman in 1477 about the voyages of Icelanders to the west (Vinland – now America).
Life stories of Columbus indicate that he visited this part of Iceland in the company of English merchants at Rif in order to get information about the earlier Viking voyages to the west.
