Húsavík is a cosy and old village on Sandoy’s east side.
In the centre of the village there is a ruin ‘Heimi á Gardi’. It is said to be the remains of a farm that was built by
‘Lady of the House in Húsavík’. She was a strict and wealthy lady who lived in the 14th century. She owned all
the land in Húsavík and also had some properties in Norway. Legend says that she buried two servants alive.
Also legend says that she got all her wealth when she sold a golden horn that she found in the ground to the king.
She got hints about the location of the horn I a dream.
Close to the ruin is a museum ‘a Breyt’ in a traditional Faeroese house.
