Snorrastofa - Reykholt

Snorrastofa in Reykholt was founded in the memory of scholar Snorri Sturluson. It is a cultural and medieval center situated in his ancient homestead at Reykholt. Reykholt is one of the most important historical sites of the country.

Snorri Sturluson was a 13th-century author and politician who lived on a farm in Reykholt. He wrote the Prose Edda which has proved to be among the most influential of all myths and legends. Edda has inspired modern works such as Wagner's Ring Cycle and Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. It is the most renowned of all works of Scandinavian literature and extensive source for Norse mythology.

Snorrastofa charges entrance fees to exhibitions and runs a souvenir shop.
