Lögberg

Lögberg is believed to be the location where the Parliament met.

 

Þingvellir National Park (þjóðgarðurinn á Þingvöllum), one of the stops on the Golden Circle tour (Gullni hringurinn) in Iceland

 

Þingvellir ("Parliament Plains") is where Iceland's Alþingi general assembly was established around 930 and continued to convene until 1798. It is located along the river Öxará and has been designed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Þingvellir area is part of a fissure zone where the North American and Eurasian Plates come together.
