Bessastadir
Bessastadir is the official residence of the Icelandic president. First settled in 1000, the site was once home to famed Icelandic poet and historian Snorri Sturluson, and the residence (built in 1761) housed a farm and a school before being donated to the state in 1941.  After Iceland gained independence from Denmark in 1944, Bessastadir became the president’s official residence.
