Old Town of Tórshavn
The Old Town of Tórshavn on the Tinganes peninsula was the home of the Faroese parliament, or Løgting, for over a thousand years; the prime minister’s office is still located here. Visitors can view mysterious rock carvings on the shore, which some believe may relate back to ancient council meetings. Stroll along narrow alleyways lined with black-tarred houses with grass roofs, some dating to the 14th century.
