Información acerca de Hólmsheiði

Hólmsheiði is a prison just outside of Reykjavík, known for its long-term rehabilitation facilities for women, as well as its reputation for luxury.

Modelled off Norwegian luxury prisons, which seek to isolate but not torture its criminals, Hólmsheiði is both venerated and condemned, depending on who you speak to, for how it treats its inmates. The prison covers 9 acres and has 56 cells.
