A historical site, national park in Iceland and a UNESCO heritage site. Originally known for being the place where Alþingi (the parliament) was founded in 930 this place had served a grand role in Icelander’s saga since the settlers came. Still today you can find ruins of old stone shelters, the lakes and the Lögberg e. Law Rock. The park sits on a rift valley caused by the separation of two continental plates, with rocky cliffs and fissures like the huge Almannagjá fault. In this separation sits the amazing Silfra fissure.
