Višareiši lies to the North on Višoy.
It is actually the northern most village on the Faroe Islands.
The village and the surrounding nature is beautiful.
In late 17th century a storm ruined the church in Višareiši and parts of the cemetery washed
away into the sea.
Tradition says that several coffins drifted to the village of Hvannasund. Here they were saved,
transported back to Višareiši and buried again.
The current church in Višareiši is from 1892.
The silver in the church was a gift from the British government as a thankyou for the rescue-work
when the brig Marwood shipwrecked of the shore of Višareiši in a fierce winter-storm in 1847.
