Krossholar

Region: West Iceland
Coordinates: 65.2154529° N 21.7936135° W

The Crucifix Mounds are on road #590, just west of the crossing by Asgardur. Aud, the settler of the area, had a few crucifixes erected on its top and went there for her prayers. In 1965 the present stone crucifix was unveiled there in her memory.

Legends tell us about the seizure and beheading of the farmer Thordur Jonsson on the mound at Christmas in 1385. Many people thought of him as a holy man after his execution there and made pledges in his name.
