Staðarstaður

Staðarstaður, a parsonage, church – one of the most famous Saga farms on Snæfellsnes. Ari fróði (the Wise), the pioneer of Saga writing, is believed to have lived there. Many well–known clergymen have lived there, four of whom became bishops. A fifth bishop was brought up there. The folktale about Galdra–Loftur, a student at the school at Hólar who dabbled in the black arts, ends at Staðarstaður, where he is dragged into the sea by a shaggy grey paw.
