Churches have an important cultural role in Iceland's rural areas, despite the fact that today's inhabitants are normally not very church going. There remains a strong cultural reference to the old times, when the church service was the highlight of every day life. These wonderful buildings are often found in the most beautiful locations. A fine example is the turf church at Hof in Öræfi, preserved by the National museum of Iceland.
