Kirkjugólfið or ‘the church floor’ is an 80 square meter expanse of columnar basalt stone slabs which have eroded over time. The hexagonal ‘tiles’ look every bit as if they were man-made but we are assured that there has never been a church or any other building on the site. The protected natural monument is located just few kilometers east of the village of Kirkjubæjarklaustur.
