Church at Saurbær

It is believed that there has been a church at Sauðanes since the 12th century. The vicarage at Sauðanes (Sauðanes House) was built in 1879 and Sauðaneskirkja church in 1889. The old vicarage is the oldest stone house in Þingeyjarsýsla district and was made from stone brought from far away but carved on site.

The Church is maintained by the National Museum of Iceland.
