History

Eyrarbakki was an important trading port during the Danish trade monopoly in Iceland from the 17th to the 19th century. It was an important center for commerce and served as a hub for the export of local agricultural products, such as wool and fish, as well as the import of various goods.

The oldest house in Eyrarbakki, Húsið, which simply means "the House," was built in 1765 and is now a heritage museum. Once home to merchant families, the House served as a center for art and European culture in Iceland at a time when most Icelanders lived in turf houses. 

The village church, Eyrarbakkakirkja, was built in 1890. Its most prized possession is a royal altarpiece gifted to the church's architect by the Queen of Denmark, who painted it herself.



Nature
