The Church of Svínoy

x

The church in Svínoy was constructed in 1878-79 and was built using wedge-shaped rocks. Other ancient churches were located on the high ground above the village, but the former churches have been placed elsewhere. Bjarnasteinur, which is said to be the tombstone of Svínoyar Bjarni, stands in the porch of the church. The stone was found beneath the church floor in 1828 and has a cross carved into it.
