Thykkvabaearklaustur is presently a church site in the county Alftaver, and was formerly the location of a monastery, which was occupied from its foundation in 1168 to the Reformation in 1550.

One of the monks of this monastery in the 14th century, Eysteinn Asgrimsson, composed the poem „Lilja”, one of Iceland’s most famous medieval devotional poems. A pillar of columnar basalt stands where the monastery is believed to have stood.
