Enjoy a walking tour of Tórshavn. Walk through history by exploring the old town Tinganes, the ninth-century meeting site of the Vikings. View colorful old warehouses which are now fashionable offices, the 18th-century Lutheran cathedral, and small turf-roofed homes, reflecting an earlier age. When you enter the old town, you will find a confusion of lanes and narrow passages, steps, rocks, and tiny black-tarred houses—a genuine town from the Middle Ages.
