Description

Size: 683 x 480 millimetres.

Gásadalur is located on the edge of Mykinesfjørður, surrounded by the highest mountains on Vágar. There is a story that the village was named after a woman called Gæsa, who came from Kirkjubøur. She had eaten meat during the Lent fast, and for this unholy deed all her property was confiscated. She fled to the valley on Vágar, which was named after her. Most other village stories are about spirits and elves.
