Laufás & Grenjadarstadur

The day we moved from Myvatn to the Jökulsárgljúfur National Park we called in at
Laufás and Grenjadarstadur on the way. Both are farm museums consisting of substantial traditional buildings which have survived because, being church farms which supported a priest, they were prosperous and also centres of administration. The interiors reflect the difference in accommodation enjoyed by the priest and the farm workers. Although there are many similarities between them there was sufficient contrast to make visiting both worthwhile.
