Tórshavn is beautifully situated at the foot of the surrounding mountains and with a panoramic view of the island of Nólsoy. The town was founded in the year 825 and got its name after the Nordic god Thor.

When you enter the old Town, Reyn and Tinganes, and walk around between the houses, you will experience a maze of alleys and narrow alleys.

The church of Olav was built in the 1100 century.
