Sjávarborg Church in Skagafjörður

Sjávarborgarkirkja church stands on Borg, a rocky headland a short distance from Sauðárkrókur, which rises high above the surrounding flatlands. There was a church there at least from the 14th century. The church is made from timber, built by Ólafur Guðmundsson of Húsey in 1853. The house originally stood just north of the old turf farm.
