Systrafoss waterfall

Systrafoss, which means “Sisters Waterfall”, falls from Lake Systravatn on top of a mountain in two separate waterfalls about 70 meters below.

Systrafoss refer to the nuns of the monastery that once stood in Kirkjubæjarklaustur.
A small lake on top of the mountain would be a swimming pool for nuns. A hand with a gold ring in his palm is said to have come out of the lake water. When they reached for the ring, they were said to have been withdrawn and drowned.
