Hrafnseyri

Although named after Hrafn Sveinbjarnarson, a hero of the 12th-century saga era, this wooden church and turf farmhouse is famous today as the birthplace of Jón Sigurðsson (1811–79), whose campaign for his country’s independence from Denmark led to parliament being restored and a self-governing constitution (his birthday, June 17, is Iceland's National Day). Inside the museum you can learn about both Sveinbjarnarson and Sigurðsson, while outside are sea views and several ruins.
