Cette toute petite chapelle se trouve au sud de l'Islande à Núpsstaður,l'endroit est tranquille et vaut vraiment le détour .En aout j'ai déjà posté une autre photo "old chapel " si vous voullez jeter un coup d'oeil !(désolée je ne sais pas mettre les liens ...)

We discovered this tiny chapel in the south of Iceland , in Núpsstaður , it's a very quiet place and wortwhile to discover .I posted another photo in august if you want to have a look to the previous post "old chapel"(sorry i don't know how to add a link ...)

A church was built at Núpsstaður in earliest Christian times, or at least sometime before 1200 AD, In the Catholic Period. The church was dedicated to St. Nicholas and there were few people in the parish at that time. In the year 1765 however, it was abolished as a parish church, but the building served as a chapel fbr the fanner and his people. After 1783, the building was reduced to the state of a storehouse. In 1930 the National Museum of Iceland took over the old house and in 1958-1960 gave it thorough reparation .(trekEarth site )
