One of the most interesting villages in the Faroe Islands, Kirkjubøur, was the cultural and religious centre in the Middle Ages. This history is visible still today in the remains of the medieval St Magnus Cathedral, which is partially covered to protect it from the forces of nature. But also St Olav’s church and the farmhouse, previously the Bishop’s residence, both of which date back to 1110, are among the best-kept historical buildings in the Faroe Islands. The farmhouse is still in use, but the medieval parts of it are preserved and open to visitors.
