According to the late geologist Sigurður Þórarinsson the slabs are from 1065. The church floor was preserved in 1987 as one of Icelandic nature´s wonders. Nearby is Kirkjubæjarklaustur, a nun monastery from 1186-1550. Many historic places and names are a reminder of the monastery, e.g. Systrastapi, Stjórnarfoss, Fjarðárgljúfur and Systrafoss.
