Buildings covered with grass and moss were once very popular in Iceland. They perfectly kept the heat and provided additional isolation to the attic.
Currently he turf on the roofs became unfashionable and walked away into oblivion. However, some fantastic buildings survived, they are almost entirely covered with grass.
The building below is very special! It is located in the town Öræfi, east of Vatnajökull.
It was built in 1884 and blessed by St. Clemens. To this day, it has its original function… Do you suspect what is it?
