Hella Town<br/>(What To See - South West)

 

Hella is a small town in South Iceland at the shore of Ytri Rangá river. It is said that Irish monks lived there in the times of first settlement in caves, therefore the name of the town comes from the caves near the river. The well-known volcano names Hekla is nearby the town. Hella is rather young town, as the founding of Hella started in 1927 when Þorsteinn Björnsson built the first store in the area.
