Faroe Islands: Kirkjobour

Kirkjobour is a village at the southern tip of the main Faroe Islands and is a host to three most important historic sites in the country – the ruins of the Magnus Cathedral built around 1300 (it will be on the UNESCO list next year), the oldest church in Faroe Islands (St Olav’s), and the oldest still inhabited farm house. The entire village is very picturesque, set on the shore against the towering mountains in the background. All buildings are pitch black with red windows and doors and turf roofs.
