29 Elves’ Church at Djúpalónssandur on Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland

Two types of mysterious beings live in Iceland: hidden people (hulufólk) and elves (álfar). Some Icelanders can explain the characteristics of each while others do not try to differentiate. But if you think these are just subjects of folklore, then think again. Over half of Iceland’s population believe they exist. This is Söngklettur at Djúpalónssandu. Singing Rock is considered to be a church for the elves.
